52% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

How strange. I have never lived in a southern state in my life. I`ve lived in Michigan, then Ohio, then India, and now New Jersey. In fact other than Florida and Virginia, I don`t think I`ve even been to the South.

Rather odd. Seems Canada and the South have similar names for things. And New England accents just plain scare me. And most of all, this area of New Jersey, squished in between New York City and Philadelphia, seems to have one of the most normal American accents around. Or maybe that`s just because I grew up here.

53% (Dixie). I`ve travelled throughout the US, although more in the North than the south, but I was born and raised Canadian, so that`s a weird result.

Armygirljenn, no one calls it soda here... lol... what about the ketchup issue? Don`t some parts of the US call it "catch-up" and some call it "cats-up"? I want a longer test!

72% dixie, which is odd, because it said most of my answers were from the great lakes area. Makes sense, since I grew up in Ohio.

Well, last time I took this I was in the 60s % yankee. I guess living half the year down south is influencing my speech patterns.
