Yankee Test

Are You a Yankee or a Rebel?  This test was introduced to me by Nicole at her blog, Less Serious than the Other.  Here's what the site says about this test…

To find out how much Southern blood your speech shows, simply choose the words you use below, then press "Compute My Score!" at the end. The Alpha Dictionary will compute your score and tell you where you're coming from: are you (all) speaking Bubbaese or are you(se) a Yankee Doodle Dandy? The higher your score, the deeper from the South you are coming. The test is based on research by the Harvard Computer Society enhanced by Dr. Beard's own research here at alphaDictionary.

Here are my results… 66% Dixie. Just under the Mason-Dixon Line.

I really didn't care about my results.  However, I thought the test was very interesting.  After you select an answer, in a Results box at the end of each question it tell you what areas in the United States use the word or pronounciation you selected!
