Funny, I wouldn't have thought I'd score so southern.

Quote:
78% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score!

54% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.


I've lived in the USA on 3 occasions, and in 3 different places: Milwaukee (4.5 years), Tampa (3 months) and Ames (2.5 years). Although a lot of my answers mentioned Great Lakes style, apparently the 3 months in Florida were the most influential in my vocabulary Wink

look at that... two good'ol boys! Wink

I think the test is just yankee-dixie, since you didn't score yankee, marcos, they probably threw you into the dixie category... Smile

38% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee.

Lived in Buffalo most of my life and DFW for 4 years.

Yea.. I'm a yank.

I'm not American, but have lived in Houston for two years. That would explain my score: 61% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!

I've lived in Houston for 2 years and Canada for 24 guess which ruled proof positive that I'm a Yank LOL

48% Yankee and definitive Yankee.

61% Dixie and 100% English.

It looks like the people from around the Great Lakes come closest to speaking English properly Wink


PS. We never throw toilet paper over our houses and you may want to speak to the French about that long sandwich thing.

49% yankee, 100% IRISH!
I call long sandwiches subs simply because there's a subway in my home town and It's become a habit. I hardly heard of about five of those terms, just goes to show you how Irish I am.

Yet another Yankee, though I have no international flair to add (have never lived west of Lake Champlain or south of New York City).

Funny about the long sandwiches, Plums. I just got back from France after passing through the UK, I can personally say after having all five varieties of the aforementioned sandwiches that the average brassarie bagette sandwich is better than them all.
