They forgot to ask about sandwiches

David did it, so I will too...

Your Linguistic Profile::
55% General American English
25% Yankee
15% Upper Midwestern
0% Dixie
0% Midwestern

I find the sandwich question to be a glaring omission. What would you call the kind of sandwich that you get at Subway? (I mean, besides "barely adequate".) Sub? Submarine? Hoagie? Grinder?


  • I am: 50% General American, 30% Yankee, 10% Upper Midwestern, I believe 5% Dixie, and 0% Midwestern. Which is a really good map of who I am, where I live now, and also who my parents are. (The dollop of Dixie is thanks to my mom, who lived in Arkansas until she was five, and you can still sometimes hear it.)

  • dpb: They forgot the bucket or pail question as well. My linguistics prof. would be appalled.

    I'm 70% General American
    20% upper Midwestern
    5 midwestern.

    Pert near right.
