What's that you say?

What kind of American Language (dialect) do you speak? This was a quick, fun little test.

Here are my results:

Your Linguistic Profile:

50% General American English

30% Yankee

15% Dixie

5% Upper Midwestern

0% Midwestern


  1. Fun quiz. I'd never even heard of some of the words on the quiz. My results are up on my blog.

  2. I'm 80% General American, which I think is a direct result of the whole California thing. Has Paige been living under a rock? Or in the same state forever?

  3. Here is the link to Paige's comments about words she never heard of and my response.

  4. No I haven't been living under a rock! Sheesh. I've been living in the Pacific Northwest where I've never heard of things like "Devil's Night", "Micheifnight" or "The Devil Beating His Wife." When it's sunny and raining in Washington, it's called sunshine and we all go outside and do a happy dance.

  5. Hi Patrick! It's Amy visiting from Paige's blog. I had the SAME results as she did! (We are friends IRL) Looks like you have some fun stuff to explore on your site-I'll be back! :)
