The survey is supposed to be able to predict where you are from by the way you speak. If you look at the map above, the spot where the darkest red is is supposed to be where I'm from (I've lived in Connecticut my whole life- did I mention that it was accurate?), gathered from 25 questions asking how you pronounce things like "crayon" (for me, "cran"), or what terms you use for things like carbonated beverages and sub sandwiches (for me, soda and grinders). The questions are funny- because on a few of them I didn't even know what they were talking about, which I suppose helped pin me down. At the very least, it's entertainment for a few minutes.
How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk.
Apparently this quiz from the New York Times (titled How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk) is the new, hot thing making the rounds on the Internet, and so I'm sure I am totally behind on it, but it is amazingly accurate, guessing both the husband and I correctly, so I had to share just in case you missed it. (originally found on this Hot Air site)
If you decide to take it I'd love to hear how it turned out for you- did it nail you down accurately too?
