Query:   How does one research the dialects of groups of people of a certain time
and place? Specifically, I am interested in learning about the dialect of
rural people in Vermont in the late 1860s. I'm writing novel and want to
distinguish their speech from the educated narrator from Maryland, and I
have no idea where to begin. Thank you very much for your time!
