Love these maps. Bubbler is so right in RI and I never knew it was called that anywhere else. However I think they got the one about the subs wrong. I still call those sandwhiches a grinder. I went to Texas once and ask for a grinder and I still think the guy there is laughing at me to this day. Its really is great to see the difference though even though this is one country with many different backgrounds.
These 22 maps are a great representation of how linguistically different the United States truly is. Depending where you are from I the US shows how you say something differently. For example, in the Northeast and South, people pronounce the word caramel in two words, "cara and mel" and in the west and west coast it is pronounced " car-mel". Even the word crayon is pronounced differently depending where you live.
