    So this is an ostensibly accurate map of North American dialects. I’m sure its highly incomplete, generalized and simplified, but the sheer audacity of this project is overwhelming. I have no idea how one would go about devising a strategy to assemble data to create this in any coherent fashion, let along depict this much information in one image. This begs for flash and web implementation. As is, its a pretty difficult piece of cartography, but an intense and impressive one as well.

    Although it misses the subtlety of Western Canada where some people are stereotypes, some people aren’t and everyone drops the “with” when they ask you if you are done with something.

    This is intense but awesome (and maybe a touch inaccurate.)
