what do you speak?

I found this on Melissa’s blog today. Take a look, it’s kind of interesting.

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

Your Linguistic Profile:

65% General American English
20% Upper Midwestern
15% Yankee
0% Dixie
0% Midwestern

Now, since you followed the directions and took the quiz, all of you Milwaukee (hear: M’wawkee) readers will recognize one major flaw in this quiz. One word: bubbler. I can’t believe I had to choose between the terms “water fountain” and “drinking fountain.” We get no respect. =) Age-old questions. Can you tell it’s my second day off from work in a row and I am a little bored?
