The Wisconsin State Journal has a good article about the Dictionary of American Regional English. The dictionary is so often the source for answers to queries we get on the radio show, that I hope DARE does a concise edition when they’re finished with the fifth and final volume. I’d like to see more people have DARE‘s information at hand. Many libraries do have the full volumes (as all North American libraries should), but the set is probably beyond the means of the non-specialist.
