Hi everyone,

My friend Corrine forwarded me the link to this page and left this comment:
Does the way you speak reflect where you're from? It does me.

About This Quiz
Most of the questions used in this quiz are based on those in the Harvard Dialect Survey, a linguistics project begun in 2002 by Bert Vaux and Scott Golder. The original questions and results for that survey can be found on Dr. Vaux's current website.
The data for the quiz and maps shown here come from over 350,000 survey responses collected from August to October 2013 by Josh Katz, a graphics editor for the New York Times who developed this quiz. The colors on the large heat map correspond to the probability that a randomly selected person in that location would respond to a randomly selected survey question the same way that you did. The three smaller maps show which answer most contributed to those cities being named the most (or least) similar to you.

Take the Survey - Those who are fond of American synonyms (according to the states), will be spoiled (I'm thinking of myself)! Wink
