Subject: Re: English Dialect in Tidewater, Virginia

Bruce Southard has mentioned David Shores' article. Depending on one's

interest in such speech, it may also be appropriate to mention Walt

Wolfram's work on Ocracoke Island, a North Carolina Sea Island, which

also has a distinctive speech form.

Regards, Bill
