DARE Digital, Coming in 2013
The Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE)—representing the full panoply of American regional vocabulary, from Adam’s housecat to Zydeco—has long been consulted by a wide range of scholars and lovers of language and regional nuance. The digital version of DARE, to be launched by Harvard University Press in 2013, will transform the dictionary into an interactive, multimedia tool that will greatly benefit both scholarly inquiry and general intellectual curiosity.
Key features will include…
- State-of-the-art search
- Browsing by region as well as alphabetically
- Audio of original DARE field recordings
- Maps illustrating regional distribution
- Saved searches and entries for easy reference
- Insights into the DARE survey
