Default What's your dialect?

From a different forum:

Note: it will take FOREVER to load, and is long. If you don't want to take a 140 question quiz, here is a short version!

http://spark.rstudio.com/jkatz/DialectQuiz/


Most Similar Cities
1 Santa Rosa CA 61.8
2 Fairfield CA 61.6
3 Fort Collins CO 61.4
4 Roseville CA 61.4
5 Vallejo CA 61.3

I took the long one and I think it's pretty neat. I grew up in Dallas but my parents were both raised in Denver, so I'm not surprised FoCo is on there and all of Colorado is very red. All of the CA results are interesting. I've never been to any part of CA.

Aw the quiz is closed. I'm pretty sure I have a Colorado accent (if that's even a thing?) since I grew up here.

I kinda wanted to take it too. Except I already know I'm apparently "very Midwestern." Which I'm pretty sure is what my friends say when they want to call me stupid.

Oh no, now I feel like a huge jerk! I took it a few days ago and didn't look before posting it here. I'll have to keep an eye on it and repost when it's back up!

I took this a while ago. It came up very Jersey, and some Florida. I grew up in Jersey, but moved to Florida in my teens. I no longer have my Jersey 'accent' to a big degree, but the phrases I use must still be Jersey. Although, there are still times when I'm super tired I find that my 'Jersey' comes out LOL.

Oh drat! I would've like to have taken it too!

I was born in Northern Indiana, my parents were born and raised in Kentucky, 1/2 my childhood was spent back and forth between Northern Indiana and Northern Ohio (with a few other places thrown in now and then) while the second 1/2 was spent in Phoenix area Arizona! I would be very interested to see where I fall! hahaha

I could answer this but you probably won't have a clue....

Mine is East Yorkshire, with a twang of merseyside, and... I think that's it, but I now live in Wales and work in Shropshire! They are all completely different accents.

I use many Yorkshire terms, but not as many as I used to. For example, cor I'm mafting, giz a croggie and we will go buy ice creams. Actually, I hardly ever say croggie as I have no need too lol

I use some welsh words, but only with the other half. Sws is kiss. Cwtch is cuddle. Uch y fi means urgh lol.

I'm a proper mongrel.
