OK…so I found this one over on KineticEnergy and thought that it was fun:

Your Linguistic Profile:
50% General American English
25% Yankee
20% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

And I think that it actually makes sense! I was born and raised in central New York (lived there until we moved to Maryland when I was in 9th grade) but have lived for the past 20 years (yikes!) in Virginia (and part of that was in southwest Virginia (where I picked up that wonderful phrase y'all) while at Virginia Tech). And that previous sentence had way too many parenthesis in it but I don't feel like going back and fixing it…

Very interesting!
