Dictionary of American Regional English

Description:

Online version of the multi-volume reference work that documents words, phrases, and pronunciations that vary from one place to another place across the United States.

The entries in DARE include regional pronunciations, variant forms, some etymologies, and regional and social distributions of the words and phrases.

A striking feature of DARE is its inclusion in the text of the Dictionary of selected maps that show where words were found in the 1,002 communities investigated during the fieldwork.
