Help! I assume there's a knack to correlating dialect maps and
"civilian" (geopolitical) maps. I don't know the technique.
I have two specific questions, both about the New York City dialect area:
1) Does it include Bayonne, New Jersey? If not, what IS Bayonne's dialect?
2) Has anyone charted the current boundaries of the New York City
dialect? (I've asked about this before, and was referred to publications
from the '60's.)
