The University of Kentucky Libraries now offers the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) from Harvard University Press.
DARE is a reference work that documents words, phrases, and pronunciations that vary from one place to another place across the United States.
DARE is based on face-to-face interviews carried out in all 50 states between 1965 and 1970 and on a comprehensive collection of written materials (diaries, letters, novels, histories, biographies, newspapers, government documents, etc.) that cover our history from the colonial period to the present.
The entries in DARE include regional pronunciations, variant forms, some etymologies, and regional and social distributions of the words and phrases including maps that show where words were found in the 1,002 communities investigated during the compilation of the dictionary.
Also included is access to survey questions and responses and a bibliography of written materials used in the creation of the lexicon.
