Yankee or Dixie ??

August 6, 2008

My Aunt Milly sent me this yankee/dixie quiz. I found the results particularly interesting. Based on the way you pronounce words, it rates your percentage of yankee or dixie based on dialects commonly spoken in different parts of the U.S.

I took the quiz and I came out yankee through and through. No surprise there. I have lived in Wisconsin my entire life. My daughter has lived in Wisconsin her entire life but my husband is a born and bred southern boy. My daughter had a little bit of both dialects which was pretty interesting to me. She was right in the middle of yankee and dixie.

Normally I think these types of things are silly, but this was pretty accurate.

And yes. I say “bubbler”.
