Editorial Reviews

Review

 

"The unique contribution of this book is the combination of methods the author uses to approach the study of literary dialect. While incorporating computational analysis of language made possible by recently available text-analysis programs, she also uses more traditional techniques of literary criticism and dialect study to evaluate dialect in literary texts."

—Cynthia Bernstein, editor of The Text and Beyond: Essays in literary Linguistics and coeditor of Language Variety in the South Revisited
