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!

Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
Won’t run on my iPad
I have downloaded it. iTunes lists as in “my iPhone Apps” but not in my ‘iPad apps”. So I can’t use it. Please fix this.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
