Are you a Rebel or Yankee? - Page 2

55% Dixie. Barely in Dixie

I spent the first 23 years of my life in the Northeast USA and the last 23 years in Florida, so it makes sense. I see several things that I would have answered differently years ago.

29% Dixie. You are a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

Which is pretty funny seeing that I was born and bred in Canada!

As a non-native English speaker: 52% Dixie. Barely in Dixie I didn't realise how southern the pronounciation in eg. movies is. To be frank, normally I speak trad. Oxford English.

Hmmmm...
I had no idea that drive-thrus weren't everywhere. There were two within walking distance of my house growing up, one about 5 mins from the next place I lived that closed because a new gas station went up across the street, and there's one within walking distance here and another a few minutes away.
The first one was called a carry-out, though. Now there's one across the street from my parents new apt. I bet there's about one for every ten gas stations everywhere I've ever lived (all in Ohio).
They are kind of notorious for not being as strict about carding. Like, if you go in a store with someone, they often card both of you here, but the drive-thru just asks for one ID, and it doesn't have to be the driver. And no, the intention isn't to drink it while you're driving, its so you can pick something up on your way to a party or on the way home, etc. They're often open later than gas stations too!

You make a good point about y'all, katspixiedust. English lacks a plural "you" which most languages have. "You" actually used to be the plural form.

They're very popular in areas where there's lots of partying. But don't worry, the intent is not to drink it in the car!
We used to have a place not across the street from the bar i used to go to called daquori(sp) express where you actually could drive up and order any kind of mixed drink (as long as it was a daquori)

60% Dixie.. I blame this on Louisiana. They say thangs funny down there. I say aunt like want, but can't like Caint, and po'boys, but it sounds like po'boais And it's a Sammich, and a bun, not a roll, I pronounce the word soda like this "Coke"... there's more I'm sure, but what can you do.

here's my score: 48% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.
but i've taken this test before. with my parents, 1 from north louisiana, the other from south louisiana, i don't talk like a lot of the people do where i live. & some of the terms i use interchangeably - yard sale/garage sale, papering/toilet papering, etc. so i'm not sure how accurate it is...

Yeah That! Lol. And yes, we have drive-in liquor stores in rural parts of texas, they are red buildings called beverage barns, lol.

Mine said I am barely dixie (51%) I don't have a southern accent at all, so I could have guessed that I'm only barely dixie.

only 18% Dixie - Think I've got the lowest score . Guess I'm a New Englander through and through.... Not sure if that's good or bad.

98% Dixie. Is General Lee your grandfather?!

Of course, considering I actually know what a "poke" is. It's the accent that gives me away, really.

And I always thought everyone called those roads feeders! I didnt think it was certain to Houston. Wonder why?

Well, I'm 39% Dixie, definitely a Yankee, which I suppose makes sense as I'm from Australia!!

Knowing me, I would be a Rebel.

24% Dixie. You are a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

I had no idea my words were so different than other areas...Well I should know because I constantly think my fiance says things wierd and I do live in the south now.

He does say route different than me. He says experiment different. I spear it, he spares it (my mom does the same thing!). Among a lot of other things...

Well this just shows my northern talk isn't wearing off after 5 years!!!

Oh and what happened to All Hallows Eve as the ngith before Halloween, that wasn't an option . The night before is a holy night.
