American Regional Dialects is the first comprehensive description of the dialect areas of the United States. Focusing on some 2000 dialect expressions, it traces the cultural and historical forces that have shaped speech regions and given them their characteristic vocabularies. Nearly 100 maps help define dialect boundaries and individual isoglosses.
