Yankee Test

Thursday, May 10th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Yankee Test

The way we say things can be a huge indicator as to where we are from. The Yankee Test is a 20 question test that asks, “Are You a Yankee”? This is deciphered by how you answer the 20 questions.

The questions are multiple choice and ask you to select how you pronounce something or what you call something. I scored “35% Dixie, Definitely a Yankee” and with a lot of my answers hailing directly from the Great Lakes area. That makes sense, because that’s where I’m from!

When you choose your answer, it may be helpful to say the word or phrase out loud. When you select your answer, you’ll notice in the text line beneath your choices that it will say where that dialect is from. When you’ve answered all 20 questions, click Compute My Score.

Now that you know how much or little of a Yankee you are, you have the option to take the Advanced version of the test. To do so, scroll down past your score into the “Did You like This Test”? area.

From there, you have the option to send the quiz to a friend (I mailed this off to my mom) or to take the Advanced Rebel-Yankee test. The other links in this area lead to research on this, an interesting Glossary and the daily What’s the Good Word feature where they take one word and tell you all about it and how you say it.

On the side menu, you can find dictionaries, crosswords, grammar, a language blog and more!

Oh, and I scored 22 percent on the Advanced Test. How will you score on these tests? Check it out!
