What is Dixie English anyway?

25% Yankee
10% Dixie
0% Midwestern
0% Upper Midwestern

By "Dixie" I assume they mean the southern dialect. Thus the questions about "y'all" and so forth.

I did not think this was all that good. My top score was "Yankee" at 40%, but I really have less of a New England accent than a Mid-Atlantic one.

It told me I speak 30% Yankee, 20% Dixie and 20% General American English... but I'm from Yorkshire, UK!
