Y'all Talk Weird

Kevin and I participated in the original Harvard survey that was something like 100 questions long, and had a lot of fun. So these answers are not surprising to me at all.

Your Linguistic Profile:

85% General American English
15% Yankee
0% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern
What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

Thanks Dave!

Well, even after almost nine years in Philly, I'm still 5% upper mid-western. I'll have to work on that!
