Econintersect: Flowing Data has a summary of 2013 year in review of their posts. Some of the highlights have to do with regional dialects and one maps the dominance of various pizza chains. Click on the map below to see the four most common dialect expressions when addressing two or more people, although one form (y'all) has been noted when only one person is being addressed.

Joking aside, Flowing Data has all sorts of interesting data visualizations. For example there are thus far 122 dialect survey maps for the U.S.
