Linguistic Profile

Your Linguistic Profile:
60% General American English
20% Yankee
15% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern
I was born in the southwest, lived for a while in Texas (sort of south-mid-west, I guess?) and lived the rest of my life in Florida (but not southern Florida-the panhandle, near Alabama)--why I come up with only 15% Dixie and 0% Midwestern, I don't know. What does your profile say? Does it fit you?

  1. This New Englander is 45% Yankee and 30% General American English (or whatever it was called). Guess 10 years in DC and 9 years in AZ have taken their toll! Michele says hi.

  2. I'm 35%, 35%, 10%, 10% and 0%
    An interesting one...Back from Michele this A.M. This was a fun one to do, Tracie.

  3. The real question is how you scored 20% Yankee. Doesn't Yankee mean anything anymore!!! I'm taking this test. I've spent my whole life in northern New Jersey and New York City. I may have to confront my inner Dixie!

  4. Alright, 45% Yankee and 35% general Amercan English. But 15% Dixie? Well, I have an uncle who lives in Cape May. And I have been to the Outer Banks on vacation.

    Y'all have a great weekend~,:^)

  5. I'm 75% General...15% Dixie...5% Midwestern.

    Odd becuase I've lived in hillbilly-land Oklahoma all my life. I'm quite happy I don't fit the norm here! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my site earlier, Tracie! :)

  6. they need another category for language here. I grew up in Hawaii and my dialect would be pidgin English. lol
