77% Dixie!

Posted: May 26, 2007 in speech acts

Here’s a little fun for your weekend!

My brother sent me an e-mail forward – which I usually hate – but for some reason I followed the link on this one. It was the “Yankee or Dixie Quiz”. Basically, you answer a set of questions about words and pronunciations you us and at the end it spits out a score.

Apparently, I’m 77% Dixie! That means I’m pretty heavily southeastern. That stands to reason given that I’ve only lived in Mississippi, Georgia and Texas. If you get a chance, you should click over and see what you are. It’s pretty fun!

    Dang! For someone who didn’t move to the South ’till I was 13, I beat both y’all Native Southerners! 82% Dixie! Woohoo!

    ‘Course, “What’s that road along an Interstate highway?” was a Houston and Great Lakes word…
