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)

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.

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!"  Grin

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

Yeehaw, y'all. Smiley

BTW, I'm new, and this is my first post.  Grin  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. Wink

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.

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.
