Subject: Virginia, 1790
I'm hoping you might be able to kindly point me in the right direction.
I'm conducting research for a play I'm writing. I'm looking for information
on dialect and language use for a lower class farmer living in Virginia,
circa 1790. He is a second generation American.
I've done some internet research, but have come up empty handed. Perhaps
there are web sites you know of that I may have missed, or publications I
may be able to locate in a nearby college university library.
Thank you for any assistance.
