New Quiz Tests Where You Most Talk Like
What location do you most speak like? It's a question that can come up often or not at all in our daily lives and a new system can help pinpoint your dialect and compare it to other American dialects.
The newest rendition of these dialect tests comes from the New York Times and takes the data processed in the Harvard Dialect Survey.
The test by the New York Times takes your responses to how you would pronounce a variety of words or phrases and compares them to the Harvard data. It then presents the information in a heat map to help you see how your dialect compares to the entire country.

Cities my dialect is most similar to
Cities my dialect is least similar to
So, I took the test two more times since the questions are rotated. Here are those results.
This isn't the first time I had my dialect tested. In June, North Carolina State University looked at how different cities spoke compared to each other.
