Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?"

Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Yup. Pop. ;-)

Accent is Northeast.

Dialect is from all parts of the country....
Im Milwaukee, a drinking fountain is called a Bubbler. You also "take da bus dat bends da corner around hey", and "Go by..." meaning to go past something or arrive at a destination.

In West Texas you swim or fish in a "Tank", and not a pond.

In Southern Missouri, you take a "Tur" (tour)..

In Chicago you ride Lake Michigan on a "BoaTTTTTTT" (exemplifying the T a lot)

And so it goes my dialect travels in a small part.
