Vocabulary Test

Thanks for the Memory to LMC of The LlamaButchers.

These results don't surprise me:

Your Linguistic Profile::
75% General American English
5% Dixie
5% Midwestern
5% Upper Midwestern
5% Yankee

For starters, I was born and live in Oregon, a state that was populated by immigrants from other states. In addition, I spent a good portion of my life moving, living in Oregon, SoCal, NorCal, and Idaho by the time I was in 4th grade, and went to college in Indiana, surrounded by students from all over the country and even the globe. All of those regional influences make me linguistically what my ancestry makes me ethnically: a mutt.
