Today I filled out a survey that asks you questions about how you talk, then shows you how similar your dialect is to other people's in the U.S. Here's my map:
I grew up in southeast Michigan, so I'm glad I still sound like it, even though I've been away for nine years. I was more surprised to see that I also talk a lot like Californians! (Although I know my vowels don't sound very Californian, but the survey didn't pick up on that.)
If you grew up in the U.S., you should give it a try and see where you sound like! There's a short survey here and a 140-question one here (which is probably more accurate). I noticed that the website is a bit slow, so if it doesn't load for you, just try again later.
Last night I also got to play the manicurist a little--we had dinner with my husband's cousin and her family, and I got to do her daughter's nails! She was very patient while I worked, and let me take a picture afterwards! (I did make a bit of a mess on her cuticles, oops...)
