Well, my results are:

Our top three guesses for your English dialect:?
1. Australian
2. Scottish (UK)
3. North Irish (UK)

Our top three guesses for your native (first) language:?
1. Spanish
2. Finnish
3. Portuguese - See more at: http://gameswithwords.org/WhichEnglish/ ... DMawr.dpuf

I think the first one is pretty good, as I live in Glasgow for 8 years now, but I don't speak a word in any of the three guesses for my native language :)

EDIT: I just checked the results of that research. It's propably because so far it only takes in consideration native speakers of Finnish, Spanish, Portugese, Dutch and German :-)

Well that was kind of fun...

...dialect:
1. Irish(Republic of)
2. North Irish (UK)
3. Scottish (UK)

...native language:
1. English
2. Norwegian
3. Dutch

Well...I don't know...it's seems my Celtic heritage can't be hidden....and maybe even supports the family theory that some of the very distant maternal ancestors were from Norway.....

Kind of spooky, I think.... :)

Happy Yoda is! Less my British English teacher so is, I guess though ;)

dialect
1. Singaporean
2. South African
3. US Black Vernacular / Ebonics :P

language
1. Romanian
2. Finnish
3. German

Not bad. Rumantsch was my first language which does not have much to do with Romanian though, but I guess Swiss German is close enough to German to count...
But maybe I can use the results on applications here.... "Q: Speak Finnish? A: A test suggests I might be of Finnish mothertongue....." Umm, maybe I will not try that yet though... ;)
