What kind of American English do I speak?

This Malaysian with a foundation of British English scored the following:

Your Linguistic Profile:

65% General American English

25% Yankee

10% Dixie

0% Midwestern

0% Upper Midwestern


I think one or two of the questions are too black and white... for example, asking if "Route" rhymes with "Boot" or "Out" is too limiting for me, seeing as I use both, depending which sounds better in that particular sentence. Maybe there should be a third option: "yes / both"?

Many thanx to Dawn for the cool quiz :)

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?
