I think the quiz is very interesting. I had never thought about some of those regional differences.

Well, my general northerness came through, lol. ;)

i wish they would put up what question(s) caused me to have 10% yankee :o

Deboogle!.

btw, they should've included the word "bubbler" in the water fountain category.
holycrapdeath, unsurprisingly that was my exact reaction :haha: That'd weed out the REAL New Englandahs!!!!

Anyway, my profile (which is right on, I think):

50% General American English
35% Yankee
10% Dixie
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Midwestern

Stupid "y'all" :mad: It's not my fault English doesn't have a distinctive second-person plural pronoun, and "y'all" seems good enough for me!!

I'm cursing that aunt/ant question which I am sure gave me way too much yankee.... and, as of right now, I'm going back to using "pop" instead of "soda"
