    74% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score!

    53% Dixie....Though I must disagree with some of the descriptions.
    People in NY DO NOT pronounce cot and caught the same way. Don't know where that notion comes from.

    Raised in NY my whole life, but went to a liberal arts college. Go figure.

    Last time someone asked me for a pop, I punched 'em.
    (That's a pop where I come from, as for the other definition, I am certainly not giving away my father).

    Ha, 57% Dixie!!! The only time I have been in the South is before I was 4 years, before I could remember...I lived in Mississippi and Florida. Guess where I picked up my 'slang'? Ha, my Dad no doubt!

    52% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

    I usually call sneakers tennis shoes. They were always tennis shoes growing up. And although I know a lot of people say crawfish and crawdads, they were always crayfish to me. Used to hunt for them in the creek...I mean, crick. And yes, pajamas are pa-JOM-as...not pa-JAM-as.

    Geez Jan...you like more of that southern food than I do. I don't like grits, collards, chitlins, black eyed peas, stewed tomtoes or okra. But I do love Brunswick stew and country ham. YUM!
