Abstract:

The English of the Southern United States is possibly the most studied
of any regional variety of any language. However, most, if not all,
books about Southern American English have been directed almost
exclusively toward scholars already working in the field. Written by a
team of experts, many of them internationally known, this volume
provides a broad overview of the foundations of, and current research
on, language variation in the Southern United States.
