Try the New York Times Interactive Dialect Map

The New York Times has recently published an interactive quiz that asks questions about your pronunciation or word preference (is it a sub sandwich? a hoagie? a grinder? And what on Earth does it mean when “the wolf is giving birth?”). After 25 questions, the quiz tells you where the strongest geographical influences are on your American accent. Want to know if you sound like a true New Englander? Or want to find out if you have linguistic connections to other parts of the country? Check out the quiz!
