dialect

Since I was in the upper Midwest, this actually was a point of conversation, especially the question, "What kind of Coke do you want?" "Root beer."

Mine was 70% General American and 30% Dixie. Nothing else.

LOL, Bonnie, you're all over the map, too. I wonder which phrases were Yankee. I know The Devil Beating His Wife is southern. Tennis shoes, too, I think, though I call them tennies. Grocery cart?

Michelle, I don't think I have an accent, either. The MN folks thought differently.

Trish, imagine! I thought you'd have more Dixie, though. You ladies should hear Trish speak. A molasses Southern accent.

I was 65% GAE, 15% Southern. I was surprised...I thought I'd have more southern!
