    fill and feel
    chews and choose
    load and lord
    lay and lie

    Re: Dialect survey

    : Business Insider Maps, Dialect, Dialect Map, Dialect Maps, Joshua Katz, Joshua Katz Maps, Language Map, Language Maps, Maps, Ncsu, Pronunciation Map, Pronunciation Maps, Us Dialect Map, Technology News

    What do you call a set of 122 maps depicting the variety of word choice, pronunciation and slang across the U.S.? Super viral.
    If you've visited Facebook in the past several hours, it's likely you've seen Joshua Katz's work. The graduate student in statistics at North Carolina State University created a series of U.S. dialect maps that, though made just for an end-of-year project for one of his classes, inadvertently set the social Internet ablaze after finding their way onto Reddit and then Business Insider.
    "I started the project mostly out of personal interest," Katz told The Huffington Post. He wanted see a smoothed-out version of data collected by Burt Vaux, a professor of linguistics at the University of Cambridge, in a survey of American speech patterns.
