We have written before about dialects across the United States and Great Britain.
Evolving English is adding another twist to this. Their Voice Map is deceptively simple: Between November 2010 and April 2011, they asked people all over the world to submit a recording of their voice. Contributors either read a children's story or a list of six words.
The results are fascinating. If you have a few minutes (or hours - this is really addictive) to spend, hop on over to Evolving English's Voice Map and hear how broken English really is the language of the world.
Not ready to be done yet? Take a look here:
- No English? No job!
- Sometimes English is not sexy but stupid
- Can you read this? English is toughest (European) language to read
- It's official: English really is taking over the world!
