39% Dixie. You are definitely a Yankee.
Honestly, I've only ever made a few trips to "The South" - I blame it on my Southern professors.

I've never even visited the US and I tried to answer as honestly as I could (difficult with some of the questions to be fair) just out of curiosity. Somehow mildly Yorkshire influenced standard English comes out as 30% dixie, which was a surprise. I can only imagine it must come from that year I shared a house 3 American girls - one from Kentucky, one from Alabama and one from Tennessee! (I joke, of course, that was pre-millennium)

96% Dixie

American by birth, Southern by the grace of God!!!

Amen.

50% Dixie.  There's a reason I'm a Copperhead and not a Reb.

 I always heard that Copperhead's were against the War Between the States and that many of them had Southern sympathies AND not too few actually sided with Johnny Reb.

The 4% non-dixie in me must be because my mom, although she grew up here, was born in California...

67% Dixie.Well  under the Mason-Dixon Line.

That is amazing because I was born in Bulgaria, raised in Istanbul, immigrated to Ohio, joined the military (all over) and am now in the Deep South.

When I took the advanced test: 19% Dixie. Wow! You are a Duke of Yankeedom!  That's 7% lower than the regular test.

When I took the advanced test I got: 0% Dixie. Need help digging out of the snow?

On the regular test I got 1%.

100% Dixie.  Is General Lee your grandfather?! (this was my score on both regular AND advanced test, lol)

Well, golly... I didn't need to take a quiz to know that, hehe.   :angel: Born & raised right here in the ATL... yep, I'm one of those increasingly-rare critters known as a "Native Atlantan!"  ;D

And while, sadly, General Lee is NOT my grandfather, LOL... my Greatx3 Gradfather DID fight for the 34th Georgia Infantry.  

Yeehaw, y'all. :)

BTW, I'm new, and this is my first post.  ;D  My real first post was gonna be much more in-depth than this (you'll note from y profile I'm...*gasp!* not orthodox... but seeking!) but the Rebel in me just couldn't pass up this thread. ;)

My ancestors fought for the confederacy, but my mother is from New Jersey.  Looks like my inherited eastern-ness prevailed over my heritage.


Interesting, I find that in my community (southern Co), the way you say things often depends greatly on what race/ethnic group you were raised around.

100 percent Dixie also 100 percent unreconstructed…and not a rebel either. Had 4 gg grandfathers in the Confederacy, one nearly starved to death on Ship Island (Ft. Massachusetts} Union prison camp. Otherwise caught in the tension between being largely libertarian and also a bit of a Southern nationalist…two laws wage war in my members…the statest and anti-statist. 

For what it is worth the first shot In late unpleasantness was fired by a young Orthodox (baptized) woman. She was the daughter of a US diplomat to Russia who was born and baptized there. Her father later became the governor of S. Carolina I think. The young lady was offered the honor of lighting the fuse to discharge the first canon fired in the cause of Southern independence.

Correction--y'all.  I'm about as far dixie as one can go.  I like visiting up north but it can't take the palm and orange trees in my back yard off my mind.  Sure I got lots of Penn's woodsman and Michigander in me, but when I visit, I always seem to find myself wishing I was in Dixie again.  Rebel, no.  Dixie, yes.

So true! :laugh:

Though I'm from the schizophrenic state of West Virginia, I somehow managed to score a 91% which is sort of funny because most people mistake me for a yinzer upon hearing me speak.

I wish there were extra answers:

1. How do you pronounce Aunt?
My answer would be: None of above. (I pronounce 'ahnt'.)

My score: 43% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.

This is actually higher than I anticipated. I don't exactly sound like many of my fellow Louisianians (though an accent may creep out from time to time). 
Note : Many of my posts (especially the ones antedating late 2012) do not reflect charity, tact, or even views I presently hold. Please forgive me for any antagonism I have caused.

45% Dixie. That was to be expected. What I didn't expect, and found extremely interesting, is that the Great Lakes area is the closest to British usage, even more so than New England.
