What kind of American English do you speak?

I found this fun survey on Veshengri. I'm not sure who this woman is, but she linked to me, so I figured it would be courteous to link back. Besides, she lives in Minnesota; we Minnesotans need to stick together.

The results below seem about right. I've lived in Minnesota, California, and Washington State, worked with and gone to school with people from around the country, and am married to a woman from Florida. My English is probably a big mashup of dialect. Not sure where the 10% Yankee came from; must be the snob in me...

Your Linguistic Profile:
65% General American English

What are you?
