Dictionary of American Regional English update

Local paper has a piece on DARE, here. They talk about booya(h), the regional stew from this area, and some universally familiar items as well, like bubbler.

An old friend of this blog reminds me not to get too upset over the fact that they dusted off an old Safire quote for the story. Well, they call him the NYT's "language maven", at least.

And the Wisconsin Englishes guys are hitting the road again: They made the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen here. (That link may disappear in a few days.)

Coach Bob Johnson used to say "it's a great day for hockey". I guess yesterday was a great day for regional English.
