Yet again, the DARE project was blessed with four fabulous interns this semester who helped prepare our recordings from the 1960s fieldwork for online publication. We are SO grateful for all their help. From L to R: Devan Valona, Dominic Weisse, Christa Berce, Lucy Sears. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Progress is best measured with cake! Recordings from 10 states were "bleeped" and completed in the Spring 2016 semester by four volunteer interns, one project assistant, one volunteer, and one staff member: South Dakota, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and New Jersey. Who knew progress could be so delicious? See more photos
The fourth Quarterly Update features the usual wide variety of new and revised words and phrases, but there are a couple of major themes in this set.
