    Check on your dialect and see if you might have crossed over to the "other side"! Simply click on the correct answer. As you go, the quiz will automatically interpret each answer to show you what your answer implies about you. When you are done, press Compute My Score. Your score will be calculated as a percentage: 0% is pure Yankee and 100% is pure Dixie.

    63% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!

    Which is interesting since I was born and raised in suburban Arizona.

    88% Dixie, and yes I had Confederate ancestors, and some who fought for the Union as well. I was born and raised in Chattanooga, so yankees think I'm a redneck and real rednecks think I'm a "city" boy. :supergrin:

    73% Dixie. Funny part is nobody can tell where I am from by my accent. Dad from the backwoods of North Carolina (in his words, so far back they pumped the sunshine in and the moonshine out) and my mom from Illinois with me growing up in both Illinois and Georgia. So I ended up with a non-existant accent.

    43% Yankee, born and raised in Minnesota, but I've lived south of the Mason Dixon Line for the last 26 years.
