87% (Dixie). Did you have any Confederate ancestors?

Born, raised, and always lived in the Southeast :).

93% (Dixie). Is General Lee your father?

Good thing I don't have an accent or someone might know!

71% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score!

Odd considering I was born and raised in California. I have been living in North Carolina for two months, but that hasn't changed me yet. What put me over the top was knowing what a "Brew Thru" is.

33% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee.

I actually tried to answer most questions based on my childhood memories of how we spoke. Being a midwesterner with a father from NY, it's no surprise. The reality is, I recognize and have used most of the terms and pronunciations listed, having spent many years living in South Carolina as well as in So. Cal.

41% - Barely a Yankee.

Aside from a few years overseas, I've lived my whole life in the Chicago area (parents born and raised here as well).

I see a little of that time you spent in Virginia stayed with you. ;)

34% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee.

Pretty accurate, for me at least. I live in Michigan and I got a lot of "Common in Great Lakes area" results.
