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

By | Posted at 18:23

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.


Re: Generally, I Don't Say

We had very similar results.

Flip flop Yankee and Dixie, maybe because you live closer to St. Louis and me farther south.

Re: Generally, I Don't Say

I've lived in enough different places, I've become a chameleon. The one linguistic hook I can't shake is “y'awl.” I've even been known to toss out the occasional “awl'y'awl.”

Heh:

70% General American English
15% Dixie
10% Midwestern
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Yankee

Southern Generic. The difference is that I am too educated to be entirely Dixie. Note the zero Yankee factor — let 'em secede!

Way to many questions that I had to pick something that I would not say.

Ex Easy class, for me was called a Grade Booster.

I drink from the “bubbler” and not the ones they gave.

You bring back your groceries in a… a plastic bag, not a bag or sack.

Sack(ed) is when you get fired.

No one here says pajamas, its PJs.

And when growing up you said “Aunty” not Aunt.

Maybe its just my American mutt status with the French, Portuguese and English shinning through and messing up this test. ;-)
