my linguistic profile

I saw this at celeboganda, and thought it was really interesting. I’ve always wondered about the way I talk, and how it can be classified. Mainly cause English is really my 2nd language.

So, here’s mine:

Your Linguistic Profile:

75% General American English
15% Yankee
5% Dixie
5% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

I don’t know where the 5% dixie came from. I think it’s b/c I pronounce aunt the right way (not like “ant”). It’s anyone’s guess though. Go do yours. I can’t wait for someone from PA to do it.
