Fieldwork recordings--Dictionary of American Regional English

From 1965–1970, fieldworkers for the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) conducted interviews with nearly 3,000 “informants” in 1,002 communities across America. They visited residents in all fifty states and the District of Columbia, collecting local words, phrases, and pronunciations to document the linguistic diversity of the United States. A digitized subset of the entire fieldwork recording collection was first published online in 2003 at the UW–Madison Digital Collections Center under the title “American Languages: Our Nation’s Many Voices.”
