Here's mine, but they forgot to include ebonics in there

if they had it mine would be something like:

85% slang/bad english
15% General American English

I was forced to talk normally because they didn't include ebonics.

The missing 5% might be due to me not having a term for an easy class... well, apart from “easy class”.

I didn't have a word for an easy class either.

Do Yankee use the same words as British English? Or have I just listened to too much southern people. Since I am European this test is probably not really accurate.

In my experience, no. They won’t use “y’all” or call every soda coke.
 
I mixed up from which part of the US Yankees are from. Oops..

I get the feeling that Yankee swings towards British or it's just a coincidence.

It’s so short, how can it be accurate? Plus it’s from the early 2000s when we seemed to be survey crazy.
