I'm From the West; How about You?

Fun quiz that you and your family might enjoy (especially if you and your partner are from different places in the country) - from the NY Times, a dialect finder

What I found interesting is that I hesitated in a couple of places because words/phrases I used in my childhood, I don't always use now because I live somewhere else.  But soda is always soda to me.

It said my dialect most closely matched two cities, one on the east coast and one in the Midwest. those two places are the places I was born and grew up and where both my parents were born.

I think the city in the Midwest is most closely associated with one particular word and so that is pretty easily nailed down.
