« Luke Reid's Lost Thoughts

Hey Y'all..take this survey!

by Luke Reid

Being born and raised in Wisconsin no matter where I travel people seem to give me grief about my accent. I don't think I have one, but I guess when I say ohhhhhh heeeeey there hoooow ya dooooin' or yea sure you betcha' it might sound a little funny!

Two men from Harvard started a linguistics survey back in 2002 and finally wrapped it up in 2013.

They surveyed over 350,000 people about how we talk. Our every day lingo. 

I took the survey and it said that I was from the Minneapolis St Paul area. Which comes as no surprise beings I was born and raised just across the border from there in WI. Crazy how these things work!

Take the survey here! I bet you it's pretty close if not spot on!
