U of Wisconsin-Madison: American voices from the past live again, as DARE recordings available online

University of Wisconsin-Madison: American voices from the past live again, as DARE recordings available online. This is about regional English, not about saying no to drugs. “Between 1965 and 1970, DARE Fieldworkers talked with nearly 3,000 people in 1,002 communities, large and small, across the United States. Their responses to the DARE Questionnaire formed a basis for the entries in the six-volume Dictionary of American Regional English (1985-2013) and Digital DARE (2013)…. Now the recordings, more than 1,800 of them, are freely available online, hosted by the University of Wisconsin’s Digital Collections Center.”
