Albel/Justin

Albel doesn't say anything anymore, just comes in, leaves an arrow and vanishes into the night :(Probably

You nearly had me fooled, you fooler you

Euphonium/10.

I'm surprised with how right it is to be honest. Not sure where Ebonics came from though.

Same as RPG, Albel, and Bonez. Given that Canadian English is really my only language, I guess they nailed it for me. I suppose that, at least for Canada, US standard and Ebonics would make sense. I think accent plays a part of it. You recognize that someone with a different accent speaks a different dialect, and instead absorb phraseology from other people who speak your language in the same accent that you do.

 

I also had to laugh at their example. Even before I finished reading that paragraph, I was thinking "that sounds like something they would say in Newfoundland". In case it's not always the same, it was "throw me down the stairs my shoes", which doesn't sound entirely incorrect to me. It's just such a beautiful and convoluted way of saying something so simple. We call it Newfinese. They have some great sayings, but I can't use them because no one where I live knows what they mean. Best is probably "stay where you're to till I comes where you're at".

Newfinese sounds like the retarded cousin of slack jawed yokels and pineys

Ok their algorithm is still a bit off clearly..

 

Our top three guesses for your English dialect:

1. Singaporean
2. American (Standard)
3. Welsh (UK)

 

Our top three guesses for your native (first) language:

1. Chinese

2. English

3. Greek

 

It's funny because I specifically avoid the American English phrases. I'm from New Zealand (which I'm sure New Zealandish isn't even a word) and our English is British English. Although because of television and movies, a lot of American English has crept in.

 

 

So this test was way off I'm afraid.

Singaporean is apparantly indistinguishable from Standard American, not sure why they bother to include it though if thats the case though

What I find interesting though is if he specifically tried to avoid picking the american english ones, presumably to purposefully force his result away from that even though he might use some of them?, he doesn't actually known american english all that well as he's managed to pick a lot of them XD

The map quiz gave me somewhere between Baltimore and Philly with a hint of Greensboro which is pretty much perfectly accurate

So this is how the map looks when you answer 'other' to around 75% of the questions because none of the Americanised answers really apply to you.

I got Honolulu, Oakland and San Francisco as the most similar and Shreveport, Lubbock and Amarillo for least.

Yep, that's about right.  Worcester, Springfield, and Boston.  I'm actually from Connecticut, but close to the border.
