Here’s a little pronounciation quiz that diagnoses if you are a Yankee (northern USA) or a Rebel (southern USA). The Alpha Dictionary will compute your score and tell you where you’re coming from: are you (all) speaking Dixie English or are you(se) a Yankee Doodle Dandy? The higher your score, the deeper from the south you are coming; the lower your score, the more northern you are.
What’s your score?
My score: 25% Dixie. I am a Yankee Doodle Dandy.
This makes sense since I am a true northern bicoastal grrl, and have been so my entire life (well, I’ve lived farther south on the west coast than I have on the east coast, where I am strictly a nor’easter).
