I think most of these tests are written by southerners. I say "shopping carriage," which wasn't an option on the test but is used prevalently in the Northeast. Also, pronouncing water, "ward-er" is something a lot of New Yorkers do, but its listed here as Rural South. I think there should be a test written by people from all over.

It seems like the options on this test are "southern yokel" vs. "general American," not South vs. North or Northeast.

Once again, the west is still a misunderstood amalgam of American culture.

I heartily agree. It's like it doesn't even exist most of the time.
