Dictionary of American Regional English

Preparation of the last volume and the updated online edition of the "Dictionary of American Regional English" (DARE), which documents geographical differences in the vocabulary, pronunciation, and morphology of American English.

The Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) is a reference work describing regional and folk varieties of American English. Based on a large body of oral data collected in all fifty states between 1965 and 1970, it also draws on thousands of written and electronic sources covering the colonial period to the present time. A unique feature of DARE is its use of computer-generated maps to show distributions of regional terms. Volumes I (A-C), II (D-H), III (I-O), and IV (P-Sk), published by Harvard University Press in 1985, 1991, 1996, and 2002, respectively, have been highly acclaimed by scholars and public alike. Volume V (Sl-Z) will appear in 2010, with supplementary materials and an electronic edition to follow. DARE's collected resources will remain available for use by researchers during the ongoing updating of the electronic edition.
