Ohio DARE Re-Survey

About the Site

The Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) seeks to document the varieties of English that are not found everywhere in the United States--those words, pronunciations, and phrases that vary from one region to another, that we learn at home rather than at school, or that are part of our oral rather than our written culture. It has been published by volumes every several years since 1985.

The goal of this project is to interview one male and one female, both under 30 years old, from each community in Ohio in which DARE had interviewed a speaker or speakers earlier.
