The English of the Southern United States is possibly the most studied of
any regional variety of any language. However, most, if not all, books
about Southern American English have been directed almost exclusively
toward scholars already working in the field. Written by a team of experts,
many of them internationally known, this volume provides a broad overview
of the foundations of, and current research on, language variation in the
Southern United States.
