Scholarship launches the most viewed content of The New York Times in 2013

Irina Barnés- Joshua Katz, a statistics postgraduate scholarship from the North Carolina University, launched back in december 2013 one of the most viewed content of The New York Times newspaper digital edition.

It is a interactive infographic -named How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk”- that allows netizens to identify themselves with the different dialectal uses existing in the United States, trough a heat map that represents the whole nation speaking uses. This map, published on december the 21st and based in the Bert Vaux and Scott Goulder study “Harvard Dialect Survey”, has swept out the record of website visits, making the rest of the newspaper staff keep questioning themselves.

Katz, impressed by the enormous repercussion of his work, has confessed that the popularity of the map is due to the confirmation of the fact that dialectal uses in the USA are more important than we think, insomuch that define our human and personal identity.
