Did you know that your answers to just a handful of questions about the words you use can reveal where you grew up? In December 2013, Josh Katz released an interactive online quiz in the New York Times that became the most viewed page in the paper's history. Now a graphics editor, Katz has taken the responses from that quiz to create this intriguing visual tour through the American vernacular, with colorful maps or photos on every page. The way you pronounce "pecan," what you call a long sandwich full of meats and cheeses, and whether you cut the grass or mow the lawn reflect more than just your personal dialect—these differences are also windows into the history of our nation, our regions, and our language.
