Do you pronounce the /r/ in 'arm'? Do you call a shelf a 'sheuf'? And what on earth is a 'hoddy-doddy'? There is extensive variation in English dialects: this is why your answers to such questions will allow this app to localize your broader dialect region on a map of England.

Did your home dialect change over time? Our algorithm is based on historical data from the Survey of English Dialects. If it guesses where you are from correctly, your home dialect has probably remained stable over the past decades. If the guess is far off, however, it is probably because of dialect change.

- Can we localize your dialect based on your pronunciation of 26 words?
- Record your dialect and listen to recordings of other users and to historical dialect recordings!
- Choose a pronunciation variant, e.g. 'sheuf', and discover where in England it is used...or choose a place and explore its dialect!

If problems occur with the app, please delete it and install the most recent version. Or contact us – info@englishdialectapp.com – instead of leaving a negative review. We cannot reply to it on the App Store.

Pretty scientific

It collects data under the user's permission to make results more accurate. However the only downside is that it only focuses in the British Isles and Ireland, not the other parts of the world.

Great fun

Interesting to run my accent. Despite the fact I never really completely escaped from RP when I was growing up in England it still is pretty accurate in terms of locating where I grew up -- if I enter choices for how I talked when I was 18. After many years in the US, it now plants it bang in the middle of the Republic of Ireland, which helps explain why one of my best friend's kids when answering the phone the last time I called said "Dad, there's this Irish guy on the phone!"

While not from the UK/Ireland, I downloaded this app to check out where I’d fit in with my Mid Atlantic accent! Turns out I’d fit in somewhere in Northern Ireland! Pretty cool!
It would be awesome to see an American/Canadian version of this! But we don’t have nearly the amount of variety that you guys across the pond do! Cheers!
