Gee, I grew up in Ohio, my parents are from Indiana, and Hubby and I have lived in New England for over 20 years now --- where did the Dixie part come from?? I'm surprised! Fun quiz, though, thanks!

Oooohh . . .I know Pittsburghese. You're right -- it IS different.

What is really mystifying to me is "General American English." What in the world is that? Probably a product of broadcast media news anchors, who are supposed to speak "middle American." Our British friends refer to their analogue as "pure BBC." smile.gif
