Yes, girlie... You do. You kind of say O's like "auuu" and exaggerate your vowels a lot (and not when you do it on purpose)... And "Wizgonzin aggzent"... "Yooootoooob" "daun't knau" "aught" "faunny".

Nah, not really. I can tell you're from Wisconsin, but I can't tell from where. I grew up in Illinois, about 5 minutes from Wisconsin, and yea, you do have a slight accent. You don't sound funny but I live in NC now and I can definitely tell you're from "home" lol.

@TheTellytubbie101 i dont think so, but a lotta people say we do

I hear your accent! well, not really, you just say some words different. like 'have' and 'wisconsin' and 'video' a little bit. im not from wisconsin though, im from canada! haha and we say words weird too, im always catching myself saying the word 'about' closer to 'aboot'. and eh, lol. i heard people from wisconsin say eh sometimes too, i dont know if its true though :s

I don't think so... I'm from WI..

You don't have an accent whatsoever. I do live around the Madison, WI area so that's probably why you sound completely normal to me.

I love how us Wisconsinites sound <333 bag not baag and milk not melk or malk

You definitely have a Wisconsin accent. The word Wisconsin said by a native to me sounds like "Wis-can-sin". I'm from South Carolina, so I'm pretty sure I talk weird to you and tons of other people. We all have accents no matter where you live in the US.

One half of my family is from highly populated cities in Wisconsin and the other lives on a farm. Urban places don't have any accent. But the rural part if my family has the funniest accent!
Report spam or abuse
You can tell when you said words like "I dOn't really knOw" and "figure OUT". The way you stress the O's in 'don't' and 'know' is clearly a Wisconsin accent. It took ten years after moving away from WI that I can now easily pick up on those signs. Also many times we hold the 'O' and 'ay' sounds in words a slight second longer than other people to the point it almost becomes two syllables long. People in WI don't recognize this, but it sounds very funny to others.

its not a Wisconsin accent its a Midwest accent. Midwestern people say their I's and A's in a different way. not a bad thing but just sayin
Report spam or abuse
Wisconsin accents are very hard to depict. This is mostly due to the fact of the upper midwest's "purity" of the language. Our accent is shared with Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan and some parts of the New England region. This is mostly credited to the higher education (irony I know) of our region. Our minor impurities stem from vowel mergers. A test of purity would mean that words like 'caught' and 'cot' should sound distinctly different. In the end it really comes down to the words we use daily

yeah, thats a wisconsin accent alright. (CA residents pronounce the word "car" as "cawr", WI residents pronounce it cahr) EX: "hey marge, run out to da cahr n grab me a beer, da packerz game is bout to start! WI accents: nasally voice. another example: Wisconsin - oh yaahhh! CA: Oh yeah! "doncha know".... if you get ahold of the old cartoon "bobby", listen to his mom's northern accent. thats what im talkin about. Half-Canadian, half north-central US accent.

Yes you do. I'm from Illinois and have a similar accent but mine's a little less noticeable. The main thing I've noticed is that we tend to kind of drag out the "A" in some words.

I'm from south central WI, So you sound absolutely fine to me... when you get to Northern WI around the U.P. of Michigan and such, you'll find people with a strong typical accent. I've been told of the "WI accent" and I'd say that its typically a very mild one in comparison to people in the southern states and the "Valley girls" of California and Arizona... Its all english, as long as you can understand it, then who cares, you know?
Report spam or abuse
There is no such thing as a Wisconsin accent. There are just simply bad accents around the globe, except for Wisconsin. The WI accent is actually pretty mild when you consider the south, east coast and west coast. Good fer us, ya kno?

yes, i am from wisconsin, EVEN there is different accents in the northwoods, central and what the hell else other places, me im in the central area, but yes you do have wisconsin accent or if there even is one and everybody else's accent is crappy.

@RubbaDub9202 seriously, talk about being especially stereotypical.....not everyone from Wisconsin speaks like rednecks....unless you are from, or know someone from Wisconsin, you really should make comments like this because you're only showing how closed minded you really are.

We don't have an accent in Wisconsin. According to the national media. The way we talk is Midwestern Standard, which is what is spoken on national news broadcasts.
Report spam or abuse
Yes, slightly, it's not that strong though.
Report spam or abuse
I moved here just a year ago - and I'm already picking up on the accent. In fact, mine has become so strong that I even hear it myself because I can still hear other people's since I was not raised here. Sometimes I say something and think... WTF just came out of my mouth lol. And yes, you do!

Ok, so..I'm trying to figure ouwwt if I have a Wisconsin accent, I don't really knoooooow-. ... So if you could just let me knooooooooow. And very nasal... OF COURSE YOU DO. And I am guessing you are from -- southwestern Wisconsin possibly closer to Illinois......You sound more polished because you did not drop the "g" on trying. I lived all over Wisconsin sooooooooh, just guessin' LOL --All the best, you bet---
Report spam or abuse
Not really. To me, you pronounce Wisconsin like a flatlander. I've been trying to catch our accents here, and where I'm from, we tend to say "Wahsconsin" and "Mahwaukee." I was raised near Milwaukee, but most of us do say it like that. You say "Wiscahnsin" which is kinda close, but...not really.
Report spam or abuse
You do, but it's not very strong. Your "o's" are fairly closed, and when they come after a nasal consonant, like in the word "know", they become nasal. That's one distinctive quality of the Wisconsin accent. It's not strong, but you can tell you're from the midwest. It's so great! Wisconsin is the best place in the whole world :-)

i'm from wisconsin too! (: apparently we emphasize your O's, making them seem longer, but idk i can't tell.

I love your wall colors. I didn't hear an accent really. The Wisconsin one is with the 'O' pronunciation and I think the rhythm of speech. I met one guy from Wisconsin, didn't think much of his accent and then I was on a plane and immediately I knew the pilot was from Wisconsin. They spoke the same recognizable way - I just can't explain it.
