Dialect Quiz: Yankee or Dixie?
Check on your dialect and see if you might have crossed over to the “other side”! Simply click on the correct answer. As you go, the quiz will automatically interpret each answer to show you what your answer implies about you. When you are done, press Compute My Score. Your score will be calculated as a percentage: 0% is pure Yankee and 100% is pure Dixie.
My result is more Southern than I’d have guessed, in that I’ve moved around so much:
84% (Dixie). Did you have any Confederate ancestors?
