43% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.

"Definitive Yankee"!!!!! (despite "time served" in the south and midwest)

Hmmmm . . . drive through liquor stores . . . yeah, that sounds like a good idea . . .

34% A definitive Yankee.

I did know about the drive-thru liquor stores in North Carolina called "Brew Thru."

I didn't know how to answer some of these though.

7. How do you address a group of people?
You all
Youse
You'uns, yins
Y'all

Umm, how about "you guys"?

Also, "route" as "root" is Chicago to Tennessee while "route" rhyming with "clout" is northeast US? I don't think I've heard anyone from the Northeast say it in a way that rhymes with clout. In New Jersey, we don't say "Drive down Interstate 80" we say "Drive down Route 80" with route sounding like root. New York traffic reporters say "root" also. I dunno, maybe NYC/NNJ is the exception to the Northeastern rule?

46 percent Yankee, barely into the Yankee category. makes sense given I'm a Lower Midwesterner.

If you click on the "you all" choice, it mentions "you guys" as a "northern" variation.

I guess the key point is whether the "drive through" aspect is intentional or "accidental"

It says I'm 47 percent Yankee, I'm depressed.....though if they count the Great Lakes and Midwest it makes me feel less bad. I just don't want to be like those miserable people from New York, New Jersey, and New England.
