What American accent do you really have?

Alright, since the last quiz, which is the most popular thing on the internet right now, was giving out a ridiculous amount of wrong answers, I made a much better US English accent quiz. Remember, this is not about where you're from. It's about what accent you have and that's not always the same thing.

Please don't be disappointed if I left your region out (like Pittsburgh or Vermont) since I couldn't think of any good questions to single them out. This is about what accent you have, not where you're from. Some places like Florida don't have their own accent so people from there usually get something like "Midland" or "Western." And did I mention that this is about what accent you have and not where you're from?

2. What is your gender?
3. We start with the first standard question. If you say the words "cot" and "caught" do they come out sounding the same or different?
Very nearly the same but not completely.
4. Now how do you say "don" and "dawn"?
Same-ish. Not quite the same but maybe a little bit different.
5. So how would you say the words "hock" and "hawk"?
Almost, but not quite, the same
6. How do you say "caller" and "collar"?
Very nearly the same. But not quite.
7. Before we actually look at questions about a different vowel, how do you usually say the word "on"? Does it rhyme with "don" or with "dawn"?
both, since I say don and dawn the same
8. The famous question of "Mary," "merry," and "marry." How do you say them?
All 3 are different
All 3 are the same
I say Mary and merry the same, but marry different from them
None of the above
9. How do you say the vowel in the first syllable of "horrible"?
Same vowel as in "horse" or "horn"
Same vowel as in "hot" or "hock"
10. The words "pen" and "pin," how do they sound as you say them typically?
Close; pen sounds almost like pin but not quite
11. What about "feel" and "fill"?
Very very close, but still not the same
12. When you say "about," "mouth," and "house," do they have the same vowel sound as "loud," "down," and "now"?
13. When you say "like," "night," and "rice," do they have the same vowel sound as "tide," "prize," and "five"?
14. If you say "bag" does it rhyme with "vague"?
15. Do you say "whales" and "Wales" differently or the same?
16. Do you say "do" and "dew" differently?
Different (dew is more like "d'yew")
17. Last question. You can probably guess the point of the question, and if you're not honest about it, this quiz won't work! The long I in words like "ride," "dive," "rise." How often do you ever turn that vowel into an "aa" or "ah" kind of sound (as oppo
A lot
Not often but not never
Only when I'm not thinking about how I'm speaking
