Every region of the U.S. has a few words that are rarely used by other regions. While we won't base our guess solely on this fact, we will carefully analyze your vocabulary for any clues that might tell us where you grew up. Will we need to get a better map, or will we get it right?
In addition to looking for local clues, we are going to comb through the words you regularly use. Your word knowledge and the words you choose will give us a lot of details about you, but we promise not to pry too much. Instead, we are going to get an overall sense of the way you speak and see if it puts us closer than simply asking you where you spent your formative years.
Throughout this quiz, we are going to ask you which word you would use, give you a few fill-in-the-blank sentences, and take a look at the way you fit words together. Once we feel like we grew up in your hometown too, we'll take our best guess about the state you grew up in. You might not live there now, but we're betting it left quite the impression. Do you think we'll be able to figure it out?
