Linguistic profile

I spent my first few years after grad school studying and working in linguistics. Linguistic theory, learning theories, teaching methodologies, etymology in three languages, the list goes on… and I thought I wanted to be a linguist. I’ve since learned that while linguistics are interesting, there are other things for me in this life. Regardless, when I came across this survey, I had to try it. So here’s the brand of American English I speak. I only wish there was a more comprehensive test I could take to get more accurate results!

Your Linguistic Profile:

55% General American English
25% Dixie

10% Yankee

5% Upper Midwestern

0% Midwestern

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?


One thought on “Linguistic profile

  1. Hi, this is very interesting! I have 60% on the General, 15% Yankee, 10% upper Midwest, and 5% Midwest, 0 Dixie. I’m a plains stater living in New England so who KNOWS what crazy things I say. I’m constantly in discussion of the Marry vs Merry stuff… And the quiz forgot to add ‘BUBBLER’ to the drinking fountain/water fountain question!

    Also, BIG heart-felt PRAYERS and HUGS to you and your son. 🙂
