Huh! Took this in '06, just did it again today -- got quite different results! Shows you what living here in New England has done over the years biggrin.gif

Today's results: I Speak Yankee!

35% Yankee

30% General American English

15% Dixie

10% Upper Midwestern

5% Midwestern

('06 results: 50% General American English, 15% Dixie, 5% Upper Midwestern, 5% Midwestern....I think )
