Trial: Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) online

The Dictionary of American Regional English, also known as DARE,  is a dictionary of  regional aspects of the English language, documenting words, phrases, and pronunciations that vary from one place to another. The digital version allows users to browse by region and hear clips from over 4,000 audio recordings—wherever the DARE interviews are quoted.

DARE’s search engine enables users to find words in definitions, etymologies, usage labels, and regional labels. An interactive map allows users to create their own maps using the DARE survey data.
