Take this quick little quiz and see if it can pinpoint where you’re from (or at least where you learned English.)
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.
I took it and 45% (Yankee). “Barely into the Yankee category.” I guess that’s explained by the fact that I’ve lived most of my life in South Dakota. Post back and let me know how accurate it was for you.
It’d be interesting to see how Brits, Ausies and Kiwis fare on this.
