I believe I took this test before. I ended up getting something like a high percentage of being a yankee.

I've taken this before and it was pretty high in the Dixie category..which you would think would be a reasonable assumption since I live in Nashville..

However...the interesting thing is I was born in MA and raised in Southern California and all of the pronunciations and words I chose were the way those words were pronounced by me and everyone I knew in So. CA (at least during the 60s) ...so that's rather odd...

What amazes me with this so called test, is how certain parts and Phrases of the English Language has Migrated from North to South and East to West.

I was raised in a very ENGLISH, and I mean U.K. British household. But because of being n the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, like some others on this site, I picked up other Colloquialism that drove my parents crazy. I speak both sides of the pond, which came in handy when I use to represent a company over there. (Talk about fun, London at 4 am)

This test I think doesn't show your speech pattern now as much as the sphere of influence of those around you, and diversity of people you have communicated with thought your life.

Glad you all enjoyed it.
