  1. Default Dialect Quiz & Survey


    So my brother posted this on Facebook the other day. It's either a short quiz (25 questions) or a survey (140 questions) on what areas your dialect falls in. It'll ask you basic questions that range anywhere from grammar, to how you enunciate certain words, or what you call certain animals/insects.

    At the end of the survey, it will compile an image of where in the United States (Sorry, this only shows certain dialects/accents in the United States. I've had a few Canadian friends take it for fun however as well) that your dialect is the most similar. It will come up with the most similar cities, and the least similar cities.

    Now, the only setback with this quiz is that the server SUCKS. It's run by North Carolina University. And just...The questions take anywhere from 20 seconds to 3 minutes to load. So if you take the long one, be warned. You need to sit through and answer every question. If you wait 30 minutes without giving a response, the page times out.

    I just thought it would be interesting to post the results here.

    The link to take the survey is HERE

    Aw, I took the 140 question quiz and...

    My childhood place of residence is outside the US, the hell do I do there? ;_;

    EDIT: I just put N/A for State/Zip, whatever. The results were interesting because I'm in North Florida but talk nothing like most of the residents (been here for 5 years now) and I come from the Caribbean (and still talk nothing like anyone there, hahah).

    I think this comes from watching TV shows as a kid and learning English that way.

    Neat! Thanks for sharing the survey. I'm starting it up, but it's as you said - the servers are snail slow on the host's end.

    Thanks again!

    Not bad, but I'm currently SoCal and was born in IN not Missouri, but my grandparents are from there which may explain it somewhat.

    Awesome. I didn't think it would be this accurate, SoCal born and raised.

    Hmmm...

    25-question quiz

    140-question survey


    I'm not a native speaker. I learned English at age 8 while living in Texas for a year. Clearly, none of that stuck. Then came school, TV/movies, books, and at age 14 living in central Connecticut for 2 years. Then 30 more years (eek!) of media English only.
    I don't know why it's so sure I'm a NYC girl.

    My result was more or less the same, it's really funny. I really think media has something to do with it. :P

    Decided to do it for the lolz. I did the 25 question quiz.

    I think it kinda cheats by asking what city you refer to when you say "The City" because that just rounds you up to a certain area.

    West Coast Represent yo.

    A British version of this quiz would be hilarious and would confuse you all as much as this one did for me.
    EDIT: This is kinda close, do this one:

    I don't think it really did anything for mine... "the city" to me is NYC and look at my map.
