Re: What Kind of American English Do You Speak?


Thanks for that interesting info, Nchristi. I didn't know that the term "Mason-Dixon Line" dated way back to the colonial period. Interesting how "Dixie" is still in use but the term "Mason" (or any derived form of it) is not used to refer to the North.

That is interesting. Must be politics that made the word obsolete.

I suppose it is one of those words where its usage is limited to certain situations.
