Generally, I Don't Say "Coke," do Y'all?

By Tim Butler | Posted at 7:23 PM

That's right; contrary to what the title of this post might imply, I speak general American English with a tinge of Yankeeisms and with relatively little Dixie or Upper Midwestern influence. Oddly, having grown up in the Midwest, I speak 0% Midwestern, according to this test. I'm not sure how scientific it is, although I do know I purposely do avoid some regional slang, so maybe that's the reason it comes out this way.

Your Linguistic Profile:

75% General American English
15% Yankee
5% Dixie
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Midwestern
What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

How about y'all (and, in case you are wondering, I cannot remember the last time I said “y'all”)?

Hat tip goes to Christopher.
