You’ve probably seen this regional-dialect quiz from the New York Times making the rounds on your social networks. You answer questions about your vocabulary and pronunciation, and it tries to determine where in the United States you’re from.
But the New Yorker‘s Shouts & Murmurs blog is really upping the ante with their own dialect quiz, which asks questions like “What do you call sweetened carbonated beverages?” Do you use “soda,” “pop,” or “Coke”? What about “fizz-bang,” “explodo,” or “gentleman’s seltzer”?
Take it to find out what they call “pineapple heat” in other parts of the country. (Some people call it “sunshine”! How quaint!)
