Joan Houston Hall, chief editor of The Dictionary of American Regional English at UW-Madison, explores whether American English is becoming “homogenized” by the media and the mobility of the American population. Based on fieldwork and a collection of written materials, DARE includes terms that we use that are “normal” to us but that may not be understood by people in other places.
