What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

OK…so I found this one over on KineticEnergy and thought that it was fun:

0% Upper Midwestern

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

And I think that it actually makes sense! I was born and raised in central New York (lived there until we moved to Maryland when I was in 9th grade) but have lived for the past 20 years (yikes!) in Virginia (and part of that was in southwest Virginia (where I picked up that wonderful phrase y’all) while at Virginia Tech).  And that previous sentence had way too many parenthesis in it but I don’t feel like going back and fixing it…

Very interesting!


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Wow, I am off to check my profile now. Your new web design is great. I use firefox though and your quote about marshmallows overlaps with the first lines of your blog in my browser.
