In December, the New York Times published this test to evaluate where you are from based on word use and pronunciations.
In taking the test, I hoped that I had not lost my Southern roots--as I have lived in the Northeast now for more than a decade.
The results were painless.
Good to know that I am still a "country bumpkin."
My three match cities are: Little Rock, AR, Montgomery, AL, and Richmond, VA.
Unfortunately, my Mississippi & Arkansas good-humored relatives will still call me "Yankee" even if I do show them these results.

Can people tell where you are from by the way you speak?
If you took the test, was it accurate?
Enjoy your weekend.
