Notice: Hi,

I'm doing research for writers of a TV show, and we want to make the Boston dialect in the show authentic. I've found plenty of sources around the internet, but can you recommend any that are particularly authoritative?

In particular, we're looking to write dialogue for working class/criminal class Bostonians, including one man who is in his 70's and has spent a lot of time in prison.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
