And, they say Americans

don’t have dialects!


Think you know if you are an original Southern Belle or a tried and true Yankee? Well, so did I! (And, as it turns out – I was right…)

Take this quick quiz to see where you fall on the spectrum.

Score more than 84% Dixie?? Well, ain’t that the berries! We just two peas in a pod!

Not so much Dixie? Well don’t git yer feathers ruffled! Ever dog should hava few fleas!

Be sur’in lemme know, a’ight?

Go hog wild, ya’ll!

    I’m 53 percent Dixie which is surprising since I’m originally from New jersey and lived a long time in CA, Italy and New Mexico.

    I’m 78% Dixie. Surprising – I would’ve thought it’d be higher. hehe Maybe its being in Dallas or what my husband always complains about me – i don’t use alot of slang. (he was sorely disappointed about

    Hey Cherrye – this is completely off topic but I was just wondering how the B&B is going.

    Here in Rome, my boyfriend is busy busy with his 2 B&Bs. Of course we’re paying Rome rents too. 🙁

    Anyway if any of our guests are going to Calabria I’ll point them to you!

    Wow JDoe – impressive!

    Stacy – I am pretty sure it is cause you dont listen to Country Music! That musta gotcha!

    Katie – I’ll email you and/or respond on your blog! I was just thinking to talk to you about that!

    I’m a Yankee – what can I say – you can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but can’t Brooklyn out of the girl. That was fun.

    Interesting quiz. I computed at 46% Yankee (barely Yankee). Seven of my responses were related to the Great Lakes area. I might add that once I read that proper American English is spoken (according to linguistic experts)in the urban areas of the Great Lakes and California…so no, I don’t have an accent.

    “50% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.”

    Right smack in the middle for me!

    “Question #18. What’s the night before Halloween called?
    1. I don’t use any word for this
    2. Devil’s night
    3. Mischief night
    4. Cabbage night
    RESULT: Centered heavily on New York City and New Jersey.”

    I thought that mischief night was the only way to say it?! Then I saw the result. Figures… lol

    I deleted my last comment because apparently I don’t know how to spell anymore and I made a really stupid mistake!

    Anyway, I’m only 43% Yankee! Quite a few of my answers were southern and I never lived there. Must be the influence of my Texan relatives. Fun quiz!
