It could get convoluted, since it wanted answers to how you said things where you were raised, i.e. learned to speak your flavor of English.  Speech patterns can change over time, especially since more people move around than they did prior to the Depression.  My maternal grandma always called a creek a crick, but then she learned her flavor of American English outside of Hotsprings, Arkansas, between two feuding families (them with each other, grandma's clan in the middle) on a small crick, er, creek.

LOL, I took the test
55% Dixie, and though I'd argue with a few of the answers, I'd probably never have as many funny comments as Karen's so I won't say much more than
how come everyone has to be yankee or southern???????
sheesh, I am definitely Californian!
I grew up in Southern California, sometimes even called a 'Valley-girl' since I was raised in the SF Valley
damn! 'gag me with a spoon'....            
I never ever ever ever said that! really? fer sure, dude!!!
how come they didn't ask me any surfing lingo?? or what we called the freeways and offramps? we never called anything service roads or frontage roads
they were just city streets where I grew up, and sometimes they weren't much more than alleys


!does this mean the south WILL rise again?

48% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.

Born and raised in MN, never gone any further south than...southern MN. Hehe. No wonder!!

Barely Dixie (56%). Although I do live in CA, one of my good friends moved to the South (GA) after spending a good portion of his life in CA.

This is funny.  I spent 27 years in Alaska and the last five in Oregon.

Interesting!!!!

41% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.  I gues my parents living in the south affected my score. Hey I have the best of both worlds, the southern charm and the northern touch....

Some folks at KBOO can tell I have some Southern roots in that I say "y'all" instead of "you all" when I'm working in a group!



I still think the name "roly-poly" is just the cutest name for a bug, and I love the name "crawdad" too! (giggles)



I guess I just have that bright firefly whimsy in my heart always!



Love,
Noah Eaton
