  2. Ten years? I had no idea you’d been there that long.

  3. Nice score Max. I gather General American English is the one with less regional accents?

    Kitty it’s really been over ten years it is coming up to 15. It is hard to believe I have been here so long.

    Hey, Michele. I’m more Southern than you. Or, musical wiseass Robbie Fulks would say, “countrier than thou”. As in:

    You weren’t raised in a shack
    So you better not act
    Countrier than thou

    Although that survey didn’t seem to be especially strong mathematically, since nobody’s linguistic profile seemed to add up to 100%.

    Plus at least one typo.l

  5. I would do this test but the fact remains, I am an Aussie.

  6. BruddahBob, I am appalled that a Brooklyn boy has 15% Dixie how the hell did that happen?

    Oh aj you should take the test for fun.
