How well do you know the Minnesota accent? Take this quiz and prove you know your "drinking fountain" from your "bubbler."
This quiz is an adaptation of “Speaking American,” a book by Josh Katz. Katz collected data from 350,000 survey respondents to identify the unique regionalisms in American language. Of course, 100 percent of people don’t say the same thing the same way 100 percent of the time. You might disagree with some of the answers. But the data show that more Minnesotans talk this way than any other.
Warning: If you take this, you may find out you have an accent. Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.
