While some people believe that differences in regional speech are dying out today in the U.S., much evidence shows that dialects are becoming much stronger and new dialect features are emerging rapidly, including basic pronunciation of words like bad and bag, Don and Dawn, or his and hiss, and these tell us much about recent history, about contemporary society and our own identities. Presentation is free and open to the public, on Wednesday, April 24th in the Klingenstein Lounge, from 6-7 pm.
