American English

Thanks to AKMA, I now know what kind of English I speak and for those of you who are interested in the same, the results are as follows:

  • 75% General American English
  • 15% Upper Midwest (grew up in Wausau, Wisconsin)
  • 5% Dixie (Boston University biblical studies professors were all studied at Vanderbilt and, quite frankly, ya'll comes in handy when you want to distinguish between the Greek 2nd person plural and the Greek 2nd person singular in English)
  • 5% Yankee (spent 7 years in Boston)
  • 0% Midwestern (um. . . )
The test itself is available for general consumption. . . as is the code to add it to your own blog! (no thanks).

I really have to do my homework now. . .
