How You Guys Talk

How would you address a group of two or more people?

Personally, I would say “you guys.” As I have traveled over the past two years, I have gotten into many conversations with women that go something like this, “Do you say pop or soda? Do you say highway or freeway?” It is interesting to see how different regions and states say things differently. Even though we all speak the same English language.

I took a test that evaluated how you said different words and what that says about where you are from. It blew my mind! The test results give you three different cities. My results were; Kansas City, Mo., Overland Park, Kan. and Springfield, Mo. This is spot on because I’m from the Kansas City area. Specifically, just south of Overland Park. Plus, I went to school in Springfield.

Take a minute and see if the test results are accurate with where you are from. A fun study break from those midterms!
