Re: What Kind of American English Do You Speak?


How funny, here are my results from 2005 compared with my results from today. I decided to re-take it and see how much has changed in three years (linguistically, at least!)

2008
60% General American English
25% Yankee
10% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

2005
70% General American English
15% Yankee
15% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

I think I got the same answer the last time I took this quiz. A lot of people have said I speak California English.

Re: What Kind of American English Do You Speak?


An aside, but whenever I take this quiz, I always get puzzled by one of the questions. It says:

Do you use the word cruller?

I always say "No" because I've never heard it before, but this time I finally thought I would look this word up and see what it means. I found this Wikipedia article on Crullers: class blockquote A traditional cruller (or twister) is a twisted, oblong, fried pastry made of dough somewhat like that of a cake doughnut, often topped with plain powdered sugar; powdered sugar mixed with cinnamon; or icing... Crullers are most commonly found in Canada, New England and the Mid-Atlantic and North Central states of the USA, but it is also common in California.Hmm, even though they're also common here in California, maybe they're more commonly referred to here as donuts?

What Kind of American English Do You Speak?


I use the word cruller occasionally. When I'm referring to that type of donut. I don't know I eat a lot of donuts and I'm familiar with a lot of different types of them.

Re: What Kind of American English Do You Speak?


The Yum Yum Donut shop in my neighborhood has crullers. Here are a couple images. The most common shape I've seen is the circular one and I've seen them in every donut shop I've ever frequented.

Oh yeah, I've seen that circular shaped cruller in a lot of donut shops and bakeries, too. They seem pretty common. Now I know they are called crullers! I guess I always used to refer to them as 'donuts' before, LOL!

Those are one of my favorite kinds of donuts, too. I guess now I've finally learned the proper term for them, LOL!
