I'm Part Yankee.

I am part Yankee after all... I was accused of being a yankee by one of the teenagers that went on the missions trip to the Czech Republic in May (I went with a church from Maryland). I denied it, but I guess my speech betrayeth me! Here's a survey I got from Kristi at Thimble Thoughts... try it! You might be surprised:D

Your Linguistic Profile:
40% General American English
30% Yankee
20% Dixie

You live in Yankee land....so where did you get the Dixie? :)

I got the yankee from being born in Ohio....I guess. I only lived there four years before coming down South.

:D My sister lives in Florida, so when I went down to visit her the past two summers, I kinda picked up the "y'all" and the "sweet pea" phrases and then they sorta stuck around:o). Maybe I should move to the south so that I'm not so "yankee"!!!
