One thing is for sure, yo hablo ingles!

I'd love my folks to take this one. My mother's from Brooklyn, my dad is from Kennesaw, Georgia. My mother has NEVER said the word "ya'll" and my father has created new words that would shock even Noah Webster :)

    Here are my results:

    45% General American English
    30% Dixie
    15% Yankee (which is totally embarrassing and just goes to show we are being invaded!)
    5% midwestern (remember I lived in Oklahoma City for 2 years)
    5% upper midwestern

  3. OK, Here I am:
    I would have thought it would be more like 60% Yankee, but I guess your father has had an influence on me these last 40 years :-)

  5. Twenty percent Dixie? Oh come on mother, that can't be.

    Because I damn sure know the word "ya'll" has NEVER popped out of your mouth, not even CLOSE!

    Yeah I figured you're a Dorothy too :)
