Michael Adams announces publication of the Fall 2013 issue of American Speech, a special issue on the Dictionary of American Regional English titled DARE From Now On. The issue includes four outstanding, forward-looking research articles, including
- George H. Goebel, “DARE: Documentation and Dating”;
- Thomas Purnell, “Hearing the American Language Change: The State of DARE Recordings”;
- Kelly D. Abrams, Erin E. Leary, and Trini Stickle, “The People within the Dictionary: Demographics and the DARE Informants”; and
- Michael B. Montgomery, “DARE and Regional American Lexicography.”
The issue also includes an introduction and “DARE: A Provisional Bibliography,” provided by the Editor. The digital edition of the issue further includes two audio features: one is an interview with Joan Houston Hall (formerly President of DSNA and currently a Fellow), Chief Editor of DARE, by Mark Johnson, who is a Milwaukee-based reporter writing a book about the dictionary; the other is a sampling of the field recordings on which Purnell’s article focuses.
