The NYT published a accent quiz in late 2013 entitled “How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk”. Upon answering a question the respondent is prompted with the next question and a map of the United States that places them on a scale of most similar to least similar. This quiz forces the respondent to think about where they are from and how that shapes their accent. I took the quiz when it first came out, but taking it again was interesting. Some of my answers had little to no recognition on the map, this quiz is by no means statistically perfect. This was probably one of the first main stream quizzes based in fact to get national coverage from a nation media outlet. People all over the country were able to take this quiz, whereas 15 years ago the internet had not yet developed into the interconnected web that it is today. Many online quizzes such as those found on Buzzfeed imitate the questions found in this quiz. One fault of this quiz is that it does not account for where you grew up, where you were educated, and where your parents are from. Someone who moved frequently would have very different results from someone who has lived in the same place their entire life.
