I did this 3 times.First time I left #10 blank,as not one of those terms sounded familiar(I call an easy course "easy").My score was 60-20-10-0-0. Second time I answered #10 with "crip course" just to answer all the questions.This score was 60-20-15-0-0.Third time(in response to Karen's question), I answered as if my great great granddaddy was born in Tyaskin.Now don't get me wrong,I am not a come here,as I was born here and have lived on the eastern shore all of my life(and have no desire to leave it).The eastern shore category is "dixie".I took the test as I hear the localspeak and the score came up in favor of "dixie".

Just call a grocery bag a "sack" and soda "pop" and you will 15% Midwest.

They forgot to ask how you say ambulance, root, cement and water. I used to say "wooder" but after 3 years at Camp Pendleton I lost some of my accent. Also is it a glove box or glove compartment? Are they wing windows or vents? Is it a refridgerator or an ice box?

You can add "poke" to the sack/bag list as well.

Also, as a really local regional identifier, you can ask scrapple or panhaus?

rubber or gum band?
