Summary: What do you call a big road where you drive fast: highway, parkway, freeway, or something else? How do you pronounce the word "been”: with the vowel in "sit,"see,"or "set”? Take a quiz and see where your linguistic usages place you on the American dialect map. Delve into how linguists who study dialects - sociolinguists, dialectologists, and dialect geographers - get data to make their dialect maps, and how they decide where to draw dialect lines.
