A young (early 20's) woman--a sculpture student and occasional
babysitter for our kids--is interested in learning about her own
native dialect.

When I first met her, I commented that she sounded like she was from
TN or maybe just east of there... She said she grew up in
Chattanooga. And, the other day she asked if I could recommend any
books to educate her about what made her dialect distinct!

So, if any of y'all can recommend anything, I'll pass it on...
