yes, yes i am a sucker for quizzes

Stumbled across this quiz while doing some housekeeping on another blog we maintain:

Your Linguistic Profile:
50% General American English
25% Upper Midwestern
20% Yankee
5% Midwestern
0% Dixie
What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

This makes sense as I grew up in Michigan, but have lived most of my life (since I was twenty) elsewhere. Ten years in New York City, three years in Arizona, a year in Boston, and for the last 15 years or so, I’ve been in Connecticut.

  1. For sake of comparison:

    Your Linguistic Profile:

    60% General American English
    20% Yankee
    10% Dixie
    10% Upper Midwestern
    0% Midwestern

    (and 0.01% Vogon, just for sake of rounding errors)
