What dialect are you?
This is going viral on my Facebook, so I figured I'd share it. My top three dialects were Fort Wayne, Grand Rapids, and Overland Park (Suburban KC). Oddly, I've only visited KC.

My bottom three? Philly, NYC, and New Orleans of which I've visited none. Where do you end up? How similar is it to where you live?

I’ve lived in the South a long time, but I can’t seem to use the violent
vernacular, like Crack A Window, Cut Off A Light or Mash A Button.

Jackson (MS), Birmingham (AL), Winston-Salem (NC).

Though GSP in the Upstate of SC was just as red as all three of those.

Most: Buffalo, Detroit and Grand Rapids which is dead nuts on.

Linguistically, all three cities fall in the Northern Cities Vowel Shift dialect frequently referred to as the Inland North dialect. It runs from Syracuse across Lake Erie to Cleveland and Detroit, then across to Chicago.
