Subject: Southern Dialectology
Does anyone know of a good reference work in Southern (U.S.)
dialectology? Specifically, I am looking for a descriptive work on
the phonological and syntactic characteristics of Southern dialect(s).
Even fairly old references would be welcome if they were done from the
standpoint of descriptive linguistics. Of course there are plenty of
prosaic and pre-theoretical descriptions of Southern speech, but I'm
looking for something rigorous done by a linguist. Works on a
specific dialect within what we consider "Southern English" would be
welcome, or works on Southern English in general.
