I Speak…

Keef pointed me to this interesting quiz in which you can find out what kind of American English you speak. Here is my breakdown:

Jane’s Linguistic Profile:

65% General American English
20% Dixie
10% Upper Midwestern
5% Yankee
0% Midwestern

Interesting. I liked the questions and besides, it meant I put off working a wee bit. Now, I have to go to the Reference Desk and help people find stuff.

Oh, it is all Coke people. Not soda or Pop. Coke. It really drives Mr. Rochester crazy that I refuse to change my generic word for carbonated beverages.
