My new online survey of world English varieties is now available online at
This survey differs from my previous Harvard and UWM surveys in a few
1. It maps the responses using the google maps engine, which allows for
interactive manipulation of the maps: zooming in, moving across the globe,
and so on.
2. It has a more manageable number of questions (31).
3. The questions are designed to be relevant to speakers of English
worldwide, not just in the United States.
Currently the maps plot 50,000 responses from the United States, but once I
have sufficient responses from the rest of the world I will generate new maps.
I hope you will consider taking the survey and asking your students to as well.
