The New York Times launched an online quiz this morning that can find out where you're from based on how you pronounce or use certain words.

We know that every area has it's own individual bit of slang that people use to describe certain things

The New York Times is claiming that it can determine where you are from, just by asking how you describe certain things or have a slightly different pronunciation of other words.

Depending on your answers, the quiz will determine where it thinks you are from.

So far, it seems to be fairly accurate and the more people that participate, the more accurate they claim the results will become.
