Subj: Irish slang
Can anyone recommend any titles that would contain Irish phrases,
expressions, slang, colloquiallisms, etc. in English. Patron is
writing a book and wants to have characters talk authentically "Irish"
- I think he's actually looking for dialect.
There are books and recordings for actors who need to put on various
accents; the main Minneapolis library has a number of them, but you
should be able to find them at a library closer to you.
I'm forwarding this to the American Dialect Society list; it's not
their territory, but someone there may be able to suggest suitable
