What kind of English do you speak?

I never knew that I had an accent until I went to college in central NY. Growing up in western NY, everyone around me sounded just like me. Imagine my surprise when classmates made fun of the fact that I liked to drink "pop!"

Words can be funny.......take this test over at Blogthings so see what kind of American English you speak!!


Here are my results:

Writing Framework's Linguistic Profile:
40% General American English
30% Yankee
20% Upper Midwestern

0% Dixie

I waffled on the pop/soda one. I think I've changed since moving to Buffalo. Great quiz!
