That's a terrific test!Found you via Farm Girl Fare ...
Here's how I break down:65% General American English15% Upper Midwestern10% Yankee5% Dixie0% MidwesternI think I got the 5% Dixie for my use of y'all (I have no idea how I picked this up considering I've never lived anywhere but in the southwest of the US) but it's more like "you all" and not "y'all". They also should have had a question about the use of "like" to find out how much valley girl you speak. I'll admit that at times I have been known to say things like, "Are you like going out to dinner tonight? Because I like totally am hungry."
