    Being Philadelphian, dialect is my specialty. When I was in Naval training school I answered a question "yeah" and my instructor immediately knew from my accent that I was from Philly. He wasn't. Of course, there are also bits like "goin down the shore" and "open the winda"

    28% reb, the remainder is yankee. Which kind of explains why nobody here in South Carolina, where I am currently living and intend to relocate to, understands what I m talking about.
    Youns guys know what I mean, don't you?

    50% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.

    Hmmm, born and raised in central PA. Currently live in central PA. Did 2 years of college outside of Chicago and did several years in Ghana, West Africa. Not quite sure where the Dixie came from, but whatever ...

    Read through the thread, took the test for the fun thing it's meant to be. Born in Scotland, grew up in Indiana, spent time in Iowa, lived the last 20 or so years in the UK...and still...

    38% Dixie. You are definitely a Yankee.

    Took the advanced...50% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.

    Oh well. Someone in Belfast asked me years ago if I was from New Zealand.:eek:

    I used to work with a guy from Bamalama and the first time he used the words, "Buddy Rub" and "Booger Bear" in the same sentence, I was like, My bear has a booger? Whaaaaa?????

    ....:confused: :D

    That's the second mention of an "advanced test" I've seen.
    I went back to look for it and couldn't find it
    What are you guys referring to?

    Look in the box below your score. It's not the easiest to spot, but after you find your score, keep reading and you'll find the link to the advanced test.

    ...again, in English please.
    That made absolutely no sense....(kidding ;) )

    Seriously.jpg

    ...found it. Thank you.

    Now I'm 49% Dixie and barely in Yankeedom, but to be honest, I coulda went either way with some of those answers, and other questions didn't have the right answer, so there's that.....however, I still hear giggles from the crowd, whenever I describe the babbling brook that runs next to the house as a crik.

    Okay, so I took the advanced test and the results were close ...
    44% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.

    Compare that to the original test where I was 50% Dixie ...
