Your dialect is 47% popular!
You answered 122 out of 122 questions, with 69 out of 122 (57%) answers the same as the most popular answer. This is a 47% weighted average (taking the percentage of survey respondents who pick each answer into consideration).

Subway (New York)
L or El (Chicago)

Metro (London)
BART (LA)
