Best description of trousers ever:
"the outer garment for the lower half of the body, with individual leg parts reaching to the ankle"
:lol

I did the quiz myself, and as a non-native speaker was "Way off. Your answers didnt fit here at all" - which makes sense. Most overlap with the south, Cambridge and Bath as the closest fits.

"How do you pronounce the words food and good?"

What other ways are there to pronounce them? :S
"Food" has a long vowel [fu:d], "good" has a short vowel [gud]. ;)
