48% Dixie. I grew up in the Midwest and Florida. My Mom is from Wisconsin, and she did grow up referring to a drinking fountain as a “bubbler.”

100% Dixie. Is General Lee your grandfather?!

I'm originally from Pennsylvania but have obviously assimilated well in my over five decades south of the Mason-Dixon line. I thought for sure that "creek" would have tripped me up since I can't shake the old habit of calling it "crick". Likewise "iron" is still "arn" to me -- but that's also common in east Tennessee.

One Texas/Southern idiom that came natural to me is "fixin' to". Near the West Virginia border where I was raised, that was fairly common and I used it since childhood. Now, I'm fixin' to hit the post button.

57% Dixie which is about right. My Dad's side had a solid Southern background with a Grapes of Wrath “Going to California” ending. My Mom's side were from Minnesota.

30% Dixi

I must say, that was more accurate than I thought it’d be. But for the record, correct pronunciation of “caramel” is not relative to your region. Like “often,” it is not said how it’s written. “Car-a-mel” is simply wrong.

67% Yankee on basic test, 79% [or thereabouts] Yankee on the advanced test. One unswered question, re: form of greeting. No availabel choice for “ How You doin’?”

What?!? Just 75% Dixie?!? I don’t think so unless you consider Texas as more western than southern. I have to strongly disagree with at least one of the answers.

“Tp-ing” is Texan, not “wrapping.” No, you tp a house and you wrap a present.

38% Dixie for me, definitely a Yankee. Got quite a few "New Yawk/New Joisey" answers.

What's with this question though:

What's that bug that rolls into a ball when you touch it?

It's called a "ball bug" obviously, and it wasn't even an option to select! All those other names for it sounded gay.

About 70 percent Dixie.

That’s pretty good for growing up in east central Indiana and living up on the Michigan state line :-)

Or maybe younger versus older. My parents demanded precise English pronunciation with no visible accent. I’ve lived in Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana. Ended up at 48% - barely Dixie and a lot of mine scored in the East or Northeast although I’ve never ever lived there. Real surprise to me!

I've lived in the South since 1986. Spent the first 32 years of life from Philly to Boston.

I prefer the South for a number of reasons. However, I still am unable to spontaneously say...

"fixin to"

"y'all"

or drop the verb "to be"...as in "...the car needs fixed..."

I did, once, say "darlin'" to a female at a drive-through...it actually scared me.

The lovely Mrs. Prov1322 was also in the car and could not believe that she heard that spontaneously come from my mouth...her concern was for my vocabulary skills...

In such a circumstance, the socially accepted response to your wife is: “Just you pay it no never mind, Hon’.”
