Give this quiz a try and post your results below. I'm curious how accurate it is for OTers outside the US/Canada

My three closest dialects were Canadian English, US Standard English and Singaporean English, and it guessed my native tongue was English, Norwegian or Dutch.

Interesting so far, I wonder what question it is that gives Americans Ebonics as one of their secondary dialects

Judging by the results here and elsewhere, Singaporean English seems to have more in common with Canadian/American than British/Australian.

Considering that I speak English as my second language and Norwegian as my third, not too surprising.

Estonian has too little of a sample size there, I'm fairly certain.

Dialect:

 

I. Singaporean

II. Australian

III. Welsh (U.K.)

 

Fairly accurate, I use Australian/British vocabulary although one could consider my accent to be American. (I have an American father)

 

First Language:

 

I. Arabic

II. Chinese

III. Italian

 

Interesting correlations; fact that I grew up in the middle-east (predominately Arabic speaking) could conclude why the algorithm believed I am a native Arabic speaker. Also, ethnically my two parents are of Italian ancestry and are still very much attuned to Italian culture e.g. speaks the language at home.
