Last June, Josh Katz, a graduate student in Linguistics at North Carolina State University, created interactive maps (above) based on Bert Vaux’s 2003 Harvard Dialect Survey results. The maps went viral and had us all discussing how we say words like “pecan” or “mayonnaise”. A new video from The Atlantic showcases these results. They called people across the country and asked them questions from Vaux’s survey. Hearing different pronunciations of common words helps illustrate the many dialects in America in a way the visual maps can’t.
