Leeds to lead new survey of English dialects
A comprehensive survey of England’s dialects is to be undertaken by the Dialect and Heritage project following an injection of funding.
The archive includes the ground-breaking work of the Survey of English Dialects, carried out by nine field workers in the 1950s. The survey will now be updated and made available online for the first time, with the help of volunteers recruited and trained as oral history and dialect fieldworkers and transcribers.
