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. E-mail address mc208188[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] Thanks, Maria
