    Harvard Dialect Survey

    This really spooky how it pin points where you are from just by answering a few questions.

    I thought it would peg me at least to my state. It only placed me in the South. I could have saved answering the other 24 questions after "y'all" if it wasn't going to be any more exact.

    I know I am "Bostonian" due to my accent and don't need some silly quiz to prove it.

    Really just have a "stranger" say "water" and the results will be proven.

    A Bostonian would pronounce it: wahhhdahhh. It sad but true.

    However, people have mistook me for Southern because I use 'reckon' a lot.

    Although there were a few questions which didn't show maps of my area, the end result was right on. It showed Toledo, Cleveland, and Akron, all in Ohio, and I am in the Cleveland area.

    Yeah. It pinpointed me right on Baltimore and that was sick.

    I think the cot/caught distinction gave it away. The Baltimore accent on that is very distinct particularly.

    Hmm. Most distinctive city matches: Lexington KY, Louisville KY, Amarillo TX. I drove through Amarillo a couple times, but have otherwise only visited Texas from within the Dallas airport. And beyond the Land Between the Lakes region of Kentucky, I’ve never spent time in that state either.



    Oh well. I’m not surprised the northeast is somewhat blue and take consolation in the fact that most of my map indicates “more similar.”

    They pegged me from New York City, Yonkers, and Baltimore. I can see the NYC and Yonkers part, although I was raised in upstate NY, so it's a little off.

    My closest was Fremont California...then Corona California. The whole state of California was the darkest red color for me.

    Pretty damn close...grew up in San Jose California and Fremont is the next city over and I lived between 9 (the least) and 27 (the most) miles from Fremont during my childhood with the exception of the few years I spent in Upstate New York.

    (I never heard of a drive through liquor store either..this quiz is my first time)

    What specifically put me in Fremont and Corona was "Firefly" ??????

    Grand Rapids, Rockford, Detroit.

    Solidly Upper Midwest.

    Quiz doesn't take into account the Canadian influence to the Upper Peninsula with the Eh? You Betcha, fer sure, or some other weird sentence constructions there are.

    Several of my individual answers placed me in the Colorado area, though, but the clearly regional questions obviously disqualified me.

    I never got a drive through liquor store question, so some questions must be based on others (there are two within several blocks of my current Northern Colorado residence).

    Very badly written. I answered most questions with "other" because I use more than one depending on context, primarily who I'm with.

    So my map looked like a washed-out watercolor with hardly any focus of color, just the two spread all over randomly.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    I saw several in Colorado. We just called it a drive-through liquor store, or The drive-through.

    I think they were covering their asses because with Fremont...a hop on the San Mateo Bridge from Fremont will put you almost in San Francisco ..or close enough...and Fremont could be a suburb of Oakland as basically the only thing between Fremont and Oakland is Hayward..and Fremont is a next door neighbor to San Jose...so you got three major American Cities and one little known one that they probably use so they are "close enough" ...maybe a similar story for Southern California and Corona?

    Re: Harvard Dialect Survey

    The only deep red part of my map was on southeast Michigan, where I grew up - but, generally, the entire north (out to about the Rockies) was some shade of red. Oddly, there was a reddish pocket in the tri-state Delta (Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana - strongest in Mississippi), and pretty much the rest of Dixie was some shade of blue, or white (neutral).

    I'm kind of surprised that "crawfish" didn't make me more "southern" - they were "crayfish" where I grew up, but generally I call them crawfish now, probably BECAUSE of restaurant menus, and the term is pretty much never used outside of the food context.

    Also very strange, and I don't understand this at all, the ONLY "really deep blue" patch on the map was Scranton-Williamsport area of Pennsylvania. The contrast of that small area was rather stark. I didn't realize that area had ways of talking which were almost like another planet, LOL.

    DETROIT, Grand Rapids MI, and Minneapolis showed up for mine, with Detroit BY FAR the reddest. **NAILED IT**!! I grew up in the Detroit-Ann Arbor area.

    I'm SURE that the biggest giveaway was the night before Hallowe'en, which I call Devils Night. That is PURELY a Detroitism. Another Detroitism that would have nailed it, is if they questioned what I call a bar that serves liquor after hours/after curfew. I've always called it a BLIND PIG. I don't think that's used anywhere else. I'm guessing they're called speakeasys elsewhere...or just as likely, no commonly-used term for them?

    Actually, I call then fireflies as well, but that didn't put me out there. I noticed on the map for that question, "firefly" is entirely a Western term. As for drive-thru liquor stores, it's not even a new concept. There was one in downtown Ann Arbor when I was a kid (and it's STILL THERE) - The Beer Depot, I think - and I'm older than dirt.

    I still remember the evening in 2005 when I saw the Mormon missionaries to their car after feeding the dinner. They looked up and the woods were alight with lightning bugs. The boys were both from Utah and had never seen them. It had never occurred to me that they were not known in Utah.

    They were agog with wonder. It was a special moment.

    Oh, and not only are there drive-through liquor stores in Arkansas. I was taken there several times by my mother when I was a kid. She drove under the influence all the time.

    Re: Harvard Dialect Survey

    My map never loaded the first time I took the quiz, though.

    I remember a question that didn't repeat (on the set which did load the map for me), though: How do you pronounce CARAMEL?

    I almost marked it "carrah-mel" until I realized I had to mark "both carrah-mel and car-mel" (or however it was worded) because I *ALWAYS* call the confectionery "carruh-mel"...except I also always say "Car-mel corn." [THANKS DEJA!! of course not many will know what the thanks is all about.]

    I remember there were one or two, but I forget which, now - where my answer showed the ENTIRE map being various shades of blue, thus meaning that my way of saying it is rare. I do know that "aunt" came CLOSE to that - I usually pronounce it like "haunt" with the missing H. I think the map showed some light pink shades around the mid-Atlantic, and up around the Dakotas...strange.

    I think that the strangest thing out there - which wasn't asked, is how SARSAPARILLA is pronounced. Probably too obscure to ask, but I've ALWAYS heard it pronounced "SASparilla." It's not spelled that way, not even close.

    I answered eight of them with "other" because it wouldn't let me answer them truthfully. It ended up with a map showing me talking most like Seattle, Spokane, Salt Lake City, and upstate New York over toward Buffalo -- and least like Jersey or Philadelphia.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    There are different questions I just don't know how many. The second time I took the survey I got a question about the pronunciation of the word Crayon.

    I almost marked it "carrah-mel" until I realized I had to mark "both carrah-mel and car-mel" (or however it was worded) because I *ALWAYS* call the confectionery "carruh-mel"...except I also always say "Car-mel corn." [THANKS DEJA!! of course not many will know what the thanks is all about.]

    I remember there were one or two, but I forget which, now - where my answer showed the ENTIRE map being various shades of blue, thus meaning that my way of saying it is rare. I do know that "aunt" came CLOSE to that - I usually pronounce it like "haunt" with the missing H. I think the map showed some light pink shades around the mid-Atlantic, and up around the Dakotas...strange.

    I think that the strangest thing out there - which wasn't asked, is how SARSAPARILLA is pronounced. Probably too obscure to ask, but I've ALWAYS heard it pronounced "SASparilla." It's not spelled that way, not even close.
    It's called elision

    I redid it and scored Detroit/Chicago/Newark. Guess it sort of makes sense being from Toronto.

    Wœstr sauce.
    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte.

    New York, Jersey City or Yonkers for me. All wrong, of course.

    My hotspots were almost all northeast (from DC through the New England area was dark red) with Miami, New Orleans, LA and San Fran also showing up distinctly in dark red. For quite a few I had to answer that I didn't have a term for it.

    What about maitre d' ?? ...of WHAT?? The "hotel" usually simply disappears. Is that considered an elision?

    Uh-oh - I needed TWO "h's" for the first word in this part of my post, so I STOLE ONE from Worchestershire. Now it's spelled correctly. D'oh!

    Not surprisingly, it wants to place me in Boston, Minneapolis and Spokane.
