What Kind of English Do YOu Speak?

Canadian doesn't seem to be one of the choices. (I wonder which 10% of my English is "Dixie"!)

Your Linguistic Profile:
45% General American English
35% Yankee
10% Dixie
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Midwestern


  1. Hey there - I just threw a post up on the lectures from last night and one from today. I have to do one more post, but it was REALLY painful to sit through. I got to meet Tony Burns though, which was great.

    Sorry you couldn't come, but it would have probably melted your head, so it's likely for the best!

  2. They omitted the category into which I fall: "Altiloquent English". Perhaps it was because the percentage of users was only 0.000003%

  3. Canadians say aboot and oot instead of about and out.

  4. What about RP ENGLISH?

    As spoken in England??????

    Questions 4, 10, 12, 14, 16 didn't have appropriate answers available for me

  5. You have to understand where this is coming from. Americans don't recognize that anyone outside of their counry speaks real English. :-)
