Homework Help: sociolinguistics-one more question

Posted by tea on Sunday, June 17, 2007 at 4:52pm.

i forgot to ask one more thing..what is a regional dialect?i can't find anything about that

A regional dialect is the use of certain words and accents peculiar to a given region. Y'all, for instance, marks a southern U.S. speaker. The pronunciation of some words such as the small stream, creek, crick vary between urban and rural speakers. When I was growing up in Chicago many years ago, a gangway was the narrow space between houses, and a prairie was a vacant lot. Check these sites for more information.
