My American English

I am by no means an American but this quiz at Blogthings caught my eye as I work with a company that deals with the English language. I thought it would be interesting to find out what kind of "American English" I speak.




Your Linguistic Profile:



55% General American English



20% Yankee



15% Dixie



5% Upper Midwestern



0% Midwestern

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

Makes sense...I think the 15% Dixie is Jerry's influence.

  1. Having grown up in upstate New York, lived in NYC for 13 years; Nashville, TN for 19 years; and now Richmond, VA, it's not surprising that I apparently speak 50% general American, 25% Yankee, and 20% Dixie English. Cute test.
