More Southern Than Brad! Ha!

Brad, over at Southern Expressions, had this dialect quiz posted. Here are my results:

Your Linguistic Profile:
45% General American English
40% Dixie
5% Upper Midwestern
5% Yankee
0% Midwestern

I blame the 5% Yankee on my mother (she's from Massachusetts).


  1. I tell you, I was somewhat shocked. Of course, had the quiz had some sort of voice recognition, I would have scored 100% dixie, I'm sure!

  2. 55% General American English
    30% Yankee
    10% Dixie
    0% Midwestern
    0% Upper Midwestern

    since there isn't "Japanese English" category....

  3. hmmm, who are the General Americans?

    55% General American English
    20% Yankee
    10% Dixie
    10% Upper Midwestern
    0% Midwestern
