A researcher at North Carolina State University studied how people pronounced certain words and used certain phrases to create over 100 maps that show how the country is divided by dialect.
For example, if you say ‘ya’ll,’ then chances are very good you were raised south of the Mason-Dixon line.
The phrase ‘you all,’ is used mostly in Kentucky and a chunk of central Florida, while ‘you guys’ is basically used everywhere else.
Also while most of America says ‘sub’ for a long cold cut sandwich, some say ‘hoagie,’ ‘hero’ or even a ‘grinder.’
A ‘sweetened carbonated beverage’ is probably a ’pop’ if you’re from the Plains states but a soda if you’re from the coasts.
