What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

Found this on the Chicknits blog and had to do it. I'm not surprized by the results.

Given that:
  • One side of the family got to America in 1636
  • When the 2000 census asked for ethic identity I put in "New England Yankee"
  • When my mother was briefly considering joining the DAR, the question was which line of ancestry to use to fill in the application
  • Try as I might, I do find myself following the 6-month rule of social groups and interaction. Yankees just don't bond sooner.
