That was a critical ID skill in my extended family.

6 of 21. I need to pay a little more attention to the least important part of science fiction.

DIALECT QUIZ

This is American centric I think so apologies to the rest of you. You might find it entertaining, however.
The quiz.

3 most;
Philly, about where I live.
Springfield, MA, where I misspent my youth.
Rochester, NY, no clue.

3 least; New Orleans, Jackson, MS, and Lubbock, TX.

All three were in Texas, and all three were because I say "y'all."

Patterson, Yonkers, Boston.

Yonkers is about 6 miles as the crow flies from where I grew up. My Aunt lived in NJ, near Patterson and her husband, my uncle, was from Boston area.

A lot of answers were multiple for me with no option to choose more than one.

In a related quiz, it was determined that foot's answers show him to be from around 1825.

Fort Wayne IN, Rockford IL, and Toledo OH. Yep. Fort Wayne and Toledo because I say 'pop' and Rockford because I pronounce cot and caught differently? Who doesn't pronounce those words differently?

My least similars were all around Boston. Hard to see because the map didn't load properly. I took it twice and got a script error...and I noticed there were some different questions the second time around.

Tougher Quiz

This quiz at Slate will be tougher for most people. It's 20 machine patent models, scaled-down models of their invention they want patented. It's multiple choice with 4 options.
I found it tough getting 13 out of 20. Go for it.

I got nine, but as the average is also nine I'm relieved that others got even fewer right. That'll do for me.
