Linguistic Atlas Projects gets new look

A renovated website for the Linguistic Atlas Projects program offers more information and functionality about how the English language is spoken in the U.S. 

A compilation of studies dating back as far as 80 years ago, Linguistic Atlas Projects track how Americans speak.

In these studies, researchers interviewed subjects listening for target items. The interviews were recorded through transcription and tape.

On the site, the projects’ data are broken up by geography, a description of the subject and who conducted the studies.
