Whenever I'm referring to any of my actual aunts, I pronounce it like ant.  Occasionally, when referring to aunts in general, I will pronounce it ont instead, but usually still ant.

I've done this before, too, but I think my results have changed some since the last time.  This is probably because I've now spent 10 years in Texas, so some of the items I used to not have words for I now have some for.  Maryland still shows as being red hot for me, but it now picks cities in Arizona as the best match for me, which is especially interesting since I've never even been in an airport there.

I took one of these quizzes once that straight up told me I was from the Houston suburbs. I think it was the use of the word "feeder".

How do you use the word feeder that isn't typical?

It didn’t peg my exact city, but it nailed the region I’m from. I realized though there’s a lot of subtle things I have shifted from after moving to California.

Feeder is another word for access road or frontage road.

With an Ah, but my fam also says Aunty hardly ever just Aunt. Although it depends on if you’re addressing the aunt by name and then also the aunt’s first name. eg. Aunty Sara, yes. Aunty Deedee, no. It’s Aunt Deedee. However just shorthanding the conversation to Aunt Deedee you’d say Aunty. Probably a syllable and cadence thing.

WTF?! with the sunshine and rain terms? Who the hell says the Devil is beating his wife et al? LMAO

As for the region, it’s no surprise it is wrong for me given I was born and raised in the UK until I was 6, moved to Andrews Air Force Base after that, then finally Alaska after that.

That makes sense.  I actually lived in Houston (Spring) back in the mid-90s and now I remember using it in that way.

I retook it and got asked a slightly different set of questions.  This time, it got me matched up exactly right.

Same here!
