It’s quiz time and this is a fun one. The New York Times Opinion Page recently posted an interactive quiz called: How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk
The picture above is a sample of the many fun questions. Here are more samples:
-What do you call the area of grass between the sidewalk and the road?
-What do you call the large, wild cat native to the Americas?
-What do you call a drive-through liquor store?
-What do you call the small freshwater lobster often found in lakes and streams?
-How do you pronounce the words Mary, merry and marry?
Each has its own set of answer options. Some options are hilarious while others make you wonder. I didn’t want to ruin the fun so I didn’t post my answers.
Here is a map of sorts that I received when I completed the survey. As a Midwest boy, it looks accurate.
Take it and share what your thoughts and results.
