Hi!

I found this little test. It's kinda cool, so do it if you're bored. ;)

"What kind of American English do you speak?"
http://www.blogthings.com/amenglishdialecttest/

My results:
Your Linguistic Profile:
55% General American English
30% Yankee
15% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

What does Dixie mean? (I know Yankee and the rest is self-explanatory)

He's currently not using the internet for some reason, I think his computer
said poof and now he doesn't care to get it fixed, as he has better things to do.
Masturbate for instance. :lol:
