My Linguistic Profile

I was perusing my friend Melissa's blog, and she had posted the results of her linguistic profile. It all sounded pretty interesting to me. So I took the test. And I'm pretty sure the 10% Dixie comes from my usage of the word "y'all." Y'all should check it out.

***Your Linguistic Profile:***

60% General American English

10% Dixie

10% Midwestern

10% Upper Midwestern

5% Yankee
