‘Dictionary of American Regional English’ nearly complete and tweets

If you’re interested in American dialect words, look no further than the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE). The nearly completed multi-volume dictionary (with Volume I, A–C released in 1985 and Volume V, Slab–Z due in 2011 [Fall 2010 newsletter]) would cost you hundreds of U.S. dollars (electronic version coming eventually), but on the site you can get 100 sample entries, plus quizzes and more.

You can also get a word a day by following darewords on Twitter. I have.
