60% General American English
20% Southern (who uses dixie?)
20% Yankee (?)
0% Midwestern (That's weird)
0% Upper Midwest

You Speak Yankee!

50% Yankee

30% General American English

15% Upper Midwestern

5% Dixie

0% Midwestern

I didn't realize Yankee was an accent. I speak like a proper Bostonian.

My nana and papa always called it tonic.
