The Linguistic me

Your Linguistic Profile:

75% General American English

10% Dixie

10% Midwestern

5% Yankee

0% Upper Midwestern

I'm curious where the 5% Yankee came from, and also curious why I have not picked up any Upper Midwesternisms despite having lived here for decades. I think they must have been looking for some of those peculiar Michigan words. I'm proud to have hung onto some of my parent's Southernisms. Now let's go get a pop, y'all.

Good question. Whatever it is, it seems to be affecting the weather as well.

And it appears to have repaired itself. That's a relief.
