Where Does Your Accent Come From? Dialect Maps Will Show You

The difference as to whether you call a sandwich a “sub,” a “hoagie,” or a “hero,” is based primarily on what region of the country you are from.

The study, broken down into sectional maps, can show what area of the country you are from based on a series of questions and responses.
