Harvard Dialect Survey – What Does The Way You Speak Say About Where You’re From?
Have you seen this going around Facebook? It will show you, the way you speak can say a lot about where you’re from. According to an article on NYTimes.com, most of the questions in the quiz are based on those in the Harvard Dialect Survey. What does the way we speak say about where we’re from?
I took the quiz twice. The first time, the results were spot on. The map showed I was a true midwest girl. The second time I took the quiz, there were a few different questions and this time, it showed I was from the northwest.
The questions are pretty fun. You probably don’t even realize you say some words differently than people in other parts of the U.S.
