My due date buddy sent me this quiz. Mostly I think of this pass along e-mail junk unfavorably, but I have a soft spot in my heart for linguistics.
After all, I spent all those years in broadcasting school getting rid of my Youngstowner accent.
And my best friend is a language lab director.
And my husband and I have several “no, that word doesn’t mean THAT” games.
Imagine my shock that I was 60% Dixie. “Barely in the Dixie category” the quiz tells me. I’m surprised that I registered anywhere but neural. I guess, living here in the South for so long, I got some on me.
How did you score? and did you find the quiz particularly scientific?
