Thank you for the information. I saw some information for DARE online and

was extremely interested in it. I found out that my school library has all

three volumes of it, so that will be a wonderful resource for me to use.

This has been rather frustrating - I grew up with Appalachian speakers all

around me and never gave it a second thought until I needed to find some

actual resources for the dialect.
