I usually get strange looks when I say the word “aunt” (my pronunciation rhymes with gaunt) so the Yankee Dixie quiz caught my attention. When I moved out west there were lots of words that I noticed being used or said differently, and the quiz contains nearly all of them. A few that are missing are:
roof: Rhymes with hoof or aloof.
root: Rhymes with foot or toot.
query: Pronounced kw-eer-y or kw-eh-rey.
On the quiz I scored: 55% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.
