How Southern Are You?

I normally don’t post these sorts of online quizzes, but this one was interesting for a few reasons. First, it uses dialect analysis to “code” you, and is based on a Harvard Computer Society Dialect Survey of 30788 respondents. Second, it’s something that nearly everyone I know has discussed with me at some point.

The Yankee or Dixie Quiz

So there you go: I’m 71% (Dixie). Just so you know.

76% Dixie. Man. I had so many “common throughout U.S.” answers I thought I might have to give my Skynyrd t-shirt back.

Just kidding. Can’t noboby have my Lynyrd Skynyrd shirt.

Kevin made me take this. My score:
“50% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.” I’m sort of all over the map thanks to way too many theatre classes on pronunciation.

93% Dixie, I’m from Mississippi but am living in California now. I left Dixie but she hasn’t left me. :0
