American Dialect Survey Beautifully Mapped

We all know how people in different parts of the US say different words (Soda/pop, you all/y’all), but there are quite a few you’d never notice if you don’t travel around a lot. Fortunately, NC State Ph. D candidate Josh Katz just published this incredible series of visualizations of all those little dialectical differences. These are some of my favorites, but you can find the full list here if you’re interested.
