DIALECT

I found this dialect quiz via Amritas, and my results were just as I would expect:



Your Linguistic Profile:



70% General American English

25% Dixie

5% Midwestern

0% Upper Midwestern

0% Yankee

This makes perfect sense, since I basically spent the first half my life in Texas and the other half in Illinois/Missouri.

1 50% General American English 30% Yankee 20% Dixie 0% Midwestern 0% Upper Midwestern I don't know where 20% Dixie comes from as I'm born and raised and still live in New Joisey right next to NYC. But I do love the movie Steel Magnolias and My Cousin Vinny - so that could explain it.

5 60% General American English 30% Dixie 5% Midwestern 5% Upper Midwestern 0% Yankee Twenty years in Oklahoma, 8 years in Texas, 2 years in Pittsburgh, Pa, and 15 in Illinois. I expected to see more Dixie in there, as everyone in Illinois says I have a southern accent. That was fun and interesting! Your Mama
