Loading Lexicons in pre-Lexus sedans
taping oral dialects of divergence and differences-
colloqualisms ,argot Americanisms,regional verbalisms
fons et origo evolving into a dictionary of common speech usage
1965 from Madison,Wisconsin,cars collected linguistic contemporary conventions
transcribing tapes of speech stylings,patois,vernacular,
utilizing etymology,orthography,pronunciations,
hunting dialect lexemes,lemmae,and phrasings(annotating all!
For the first time.,our American language was demarcated via
geography,topography,heritage and immigration.A linguistic census!
Never before and never again has slang been elevated to more than ebonics
Fred Cassidy's "Dictionary of American Regional English"exists
like Encyclopaedia Britannica pre-Google
a quizzical and unique time bound imprint
of a language long changed,for a people
even more altered via speech ,class,dialect ,region and accent.
