Wuccha Tok Like Thet Fer?

I saw that Tori took this quiz, so I thought I'd give it a try. I thought the results were very interesting since I've lived in Florida all but the past year of my life. Maybe that's the reason my quiz results were so mixed up; Florida, although a Southern state, has quite a variety of people and dialects. I'm curious to know what I'm speaking with the missing 5%; maybe it's the language of "baby-jabber." What kind of American language do you speak? Find out here.
Your Linguistic Profile:
60% General American English
20% Dixie
10% Yankee
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Midwestern

That was a fun quiz. I had 70% general, 15% Upper Midwestern, no midwestern, no Dixie and 15% Yankee.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I will be back!

I speak 70% general english. Strangly, I only speak 5% midwestern and 20% upper midwestern. Even though I'm from the middle of Iowa;0

My husband and I took that quiz about a month ago. We both found it funny because we were quite the mix. We figured it was because we both grew up in Western PA but visited up and down the coast for holidays and both had teachers for parents (which meant we didn't speak the colloquialisms) plus we lived in Massachusett's for a while, which removed the few western PA only words we did speak (Pop is a sound not a drink!). Of course my jaunt in Poland where the English speakers all speak British didn't help. Pretty fun!
