The Language We Speak

Here is a great website that uses variations in the way English is spoken to create some pretty cool maps, Dialect Survey Results.

The map above shows where people drink soda (red), pop (blue), or coke (green). These maps were created using a survey and you can use a drop down menu on the left to check out all of the questions, responses and maps. As you play with the maps, think about all of the different influences on our culture. Enjoy!
