Let this Quiz Assess Your Dialect

This is very interesting for anyone interested in regional accents. Answer ten or so questions about your words for things, and it will tell you where it thinks you come from. It had a hard time localizing me though I attempted to use my childhood words for things, but some people it totally pegs. My language is most different from the Great Lakes area, which makes sense because I've never been there.

maybe it's not you
It's possible that their dialect data just doesn't cover your particular flavor. Though how they could leave out Michigan I don't know! Maybe you are too educated. =-]
