A Resource Guide to the American Language as spoken in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland
Manuscript Burst

The Mid-Atlantic region is linguistically very diverse. Elements of New England, Midwestern, Appalachian, and Coastal Southern speech can all be found within its confines. Regrettably, however, few comprehensive treatments of the various dialects exist. Evolution Publishing is proud to make available four books on the speech within Pennsylvania. Future volumes will treat other areas in the region. We have also collected an extensive bibliography with about 150 books and articles on Mid-Atlantic dialectology.
