    NY Times quiz will pinpoint where you're from based on your dialect. I took it twice and it placed me right smack in Western Kentucky, with some similarly colored areas in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Georgia.

    Bonus: There's a mountain lion question. Some of the questions were different the second time I took the quiz but the "What do you call the large, wild cat native to the Americas" question was on both.

    It put me at Grindstone. Pretty cool quiz!

    The mountain lion question.... which animal is to blame for the 3 million deer reduction nationwide.

    put me in Michigan, as that is where i grew up. Lived in KY longer than MI. I did not get a question about a mountain lion or any other beast for that matter.

    Wow! Put me right where my dad's side came from and I grew up mostly. In extreme SE KY, VA and TN at Cumberland Gap area. I got folks in Tazewell, TN and in Middlesborough and Pineville, KY. Pretty accurate for me anyway.
     
  5. I took it last week and it is the most accurate type of these dialect tests I've ever taken. I've had tests in the past say I was from Michigan. Man, I sound like such a hick when I speak that hicks tell me I sound like a hick. Anyway, this test had Lexington to Little Rock in dark red for my dialect, with a little Columbus, GA mixed in.

    It keeps telling me my browser is out of date when I click on the link. I updated it and it says the same thing.

    It put me in Mississippi and Alabama. I guess I could have fared worse. I know I still don't talk like my friends who are natives of GA.

    When I was living in PA, going to taxidermy school, I went into Walmart late one night. The gal who was checking out was all tatted up and very unattractive IMO. As she started ringing up my items, we were talking. She stopped what she was doing, looked straight at me and said "Where the hell are you from?" I asked her if it was that obvious and she said she knew I wasn't from those parts.

    Mine was Lexington and I've live in Louisville and shepherdsville. So it was pretty close

    It said Louisville, Lexington, Richmond, Va for me. I grew up in northern WV but have been in Ky longer than in WV.
    I'm gonna get my wife to try this tonight.

    Louisville/Lexington/Little Rock. Kentucky really is dark, bloody ground on my map. Kinda surprised how much of Texas matched up as well.

    It said my browser was out of date and I can't view the quiz. Based on that it concluded I was somewhere in East Kentucky.
