Oh, look! A quiz!

It's been a while since I've succumbed to the temptation to take a silly online quiz; but this one is making the rounds, so here I go. My mother fussed about the way we spoke, especially eagerly correcting regional (read, "Chicago") pronounciations. I think she'd be pleased.

65% General American English

10% Dixie

10% Upper Midwestern

I'm disappointed they didn't use a Pacific Northwest locale. For instance, "What do you call it when it rains when the sun is out?" How about, "Normal"??
