Your Linguistic Profile::
55% General American English
15% Upper Midwestern
15% Yankee
10% Dixie
0% Midwestern
Does it make me a freak that I spent the first 21 years of my life in Kansas and I have 0% for Midwestern on my linguistic profile? My students and co-workers would say that I definitely should have scored higher on the Dixie score.

That was a very interesting quiz ... there were some phrases in there that I've never heard in my life! But living in Michigan all my life, my results were not surprising!
