I have updated the dialect chart based on the results for the first few days. Since the new version shows up automatically in the frame in the previous post, I haven't added it in here. And you can get a better look at it on the website.
The biggest difference is that also added several "dialects" for non-native speakers of English. That is, I added five new dialects, one each for people whose first language was Spanish, German, Portuguese, Dutch, or Finnish. I'll be adding more of these dialects in the future, but those just happen to be the groups for which we have a decent number of respondents.
As you can see, the algorithm finds that American & Canadian speakers are more likely one another than they are like anyone else. Similarly, English, Irish, Scottish, and Australian speakers are more likely one another than anyone else. And the non-native English speakers also form a group. I'll leave you to explore the more fine-grained groupings on your own.
If you are wondering why New Zealanders are off by themselves, that's mostly because we don't have very many of them, and the algorithm has difficulty classifying dialects for which there isn't much data. Same for Welsh English, South African English, and Black Vernacular English. So if you know people who speak any of those dialects...
