Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE)

Database trial ends April 17th, 2014. Please give us your feedback. (UMass NetID login required for UMass Apps.)

DARE is different from other dictionaries in that it does not include words that are commonly used throughout the United States, but rather focuses on the regional aspects of our language, documenting words, phrases, and pronunciations that vary from one place to another.
