Canajun English

Which American accent do you have?


You're not Northern, Southern, or Western, you`re just plain -American-. Your national identity is more important than your local identity, because you don`t really have a local identity. You might be from the region in that map, which is defined by this kind of accent, but you could easily not be. Or maybe you just moved around a lot growing up.

I also did this "Are you a Rebel or a Yankee?" test and came out about 70% Yankee, unsurprisingly. What was odd was the number of times I basically picked one answer out of multiple applicable ones. For instance:

What is your regular word for the thing you push around the supermarket?

  • A (shopping) buggy.
  • A (shopping) cart.
  • A (shopping) trolley.
  • A (shopping) basket.

A shopping cart or a buggy (though never a shopping buggy), rarely a trolley, and a basket is something altogether different.

What do you pack for travel?

  • A suitcase.
  • A bag.
  • A valise.
  • My spouse packs for me.

Well, I pack a suitcase if I'm packing a suitcase, and a bag if I'm taking a bag (generally smaller, for shorter trips).

Do you generally . . .

  • mow the lawn?
  • cut the grass?
  • mow the grass?
  • cut the lawn?

Any and or all of the above. I can't even tell you which is more common.
