Subtitle: How Dialects Differ from Coast to Coast
Edited By: Walt Wolfram
Ben Ward
Description:

Ever wanted to yak with the Yankees or speak the Big Easy? Well, travel
with American Voices across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean to
experience both familiar and little-known dialects that are thriving
despite the homogenizing pressure exerted by our mass-communication
culture. Edited by acclaimed linguist, Walt Wolfram, and consultant editor

understanding of language diversity through an engaging look at regional,
ethnic, and sociocultural dialects such as African American, Chicano,
Cajun, and Jewish English.
