Qs: 19th Century Dialects of Western Massachusetts

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Subject: 19th Century Dialects of Western Massachusetts

A student and I are working on an intriguing side project and could use
some help, if possible. We are trying to put together a list of possible
features of the dialect of Emily Dickinson (19th century western
Massachusetts/Amherst). We are looking at the LANE maps & tapes, but, of
course those are almost exactly one century later. Any ideas would be
greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
