American English

July 25, 2006

I found this test that determines what "kind" of American English that one speaks. I tried it out and here are the results:

Your Linguistic Profile:
70% General American English
15% Yankee
5% Dixie
5% Upper Midwestern
0% Midwestern

I guess it make sense, I spent most of my time in the US in the Pacific Northwest, and went to college in the Midwest, and I've watched enough movies and read enough books to confuse myself even further.

僕のアメリカ英語にヤンキー系(ニューヨーク郊外あたりからワシントンDCにかけて)があるのはわかる、大学が中西部だから中西部も分かるが。Dixie?Deep Southの表現を使っていたとは。
