    Dialect Similarity Map and Quiz

    I haven't seen this posted yet: http://spark.rstudio.com/jkatz/DialectQuiz/

    The link takes you to a short 25 question (or the full 140 question version) multiple choice dialect quiz. It might tell you the server is overloaded, but it usually pops up after refreshing the page a couple times.

    At the end, it gives you a dialect survey map showing where in the U.S. people speak more or less similar to you. Here is mine:



    Winning cures all.

    That was pretty cool :)

    My five most similar cities - pretty accurate since #1 is probably the closest one they have to my hometown (not sure if they'd have Dubuque?) and I've lived very near two of the others.

    2 Cedar Rapids IA 53.7

    keep refreshing, it took like 3-4 times for me, and then some of the questions made me wait a moment before they'd load the next one.

    Odd, considering I've NEVER lived in the area it says I most resemble. I've only lived in Long Island, NY, Washington, DC, Davenport/Ames, IA, and currently Clinton Township, MI.

    Then again, when I look at the map, Ohio is lit up like a Christmas tree as well. Could have something to do with my parents' heavy New York dialect mixed with me growing up in Iowa

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Dialect Similarity Map and Quiz

    My most similar areas were pretty Missouri-y.... which is moderately frightening.

    All of New England for dissimilar.

    Most common with Madison, Milwaukee, and Green Bay Wisconsin, along with Provo, and West Jordan Utah.

    Dissimilar to 5 places in the north east.
