I am looking for stuff about "foreign accents" that turned into dialects.   Irish
English, AAVE and Hawaiian English are things that come to mind.   What about
that Iron Range stuff with the th-stopping?   Has that been linked to
Scandanavian immigrant influence?   References would be welcome, as well as info
on languages besides English.
