My name is Maria and I am a first year graduate student in Hearing and Speech

Sciences at Ohio University. I have always been interested in the various

dialects that are used in America and I am looking forward to hearing what the

members of this list discuss. Since I grew up in Southeastern Ohio I am very

familiar with the Appalachian dialect. If anyone has any specific questions

or comments about this American dialect I would really like to hear from you.
