Synopsis: This series captures the language spoken on America's main streets and country roads, words and phrases passed along within homes and communities, from east to west, north to south, childhood to old age. Built upon an unprecedented survey of spoken English across America and bolstered by extensive historical research, DARE preserves the language with all its idioms and peculiarities.

Review: William Safire calls it "The most exciting linguistic project going on in the United States," and I'd have to agree. Dictionary of American Regional English is a corker (thing of remarkable quality or strength). There's nothing cheesy (low-grade, cheap) or cold potato (dull, boring, or worthless) about it. It's such couthy (amiable) reading that it's hard to raise your conkhouse (lift your head) and agress (move forward and make progress).
