Professor Instructions: For this project you will be required to analyze a dialect. You should start with a town/city (e.g. Albuquerque, NM) and search for academic articles that discuss the dialect of this town. The point of the project is to focus on the characteristics of a small, local dialect not a regional dialect. Remember that you should be using academic resources for this project. Google Scholar is a good database to use. You should not use nonacademic (i.e. Wikipedia, newspapers, online blogs) resources for your research. Your paper should describe in as much detail as possible the different characteristics of the speakers of English. Please refer to all of the levels of dialect, if possible. Your paper should be at least 4 pages double-spaced and include a minimum of 3 academic references and be written in MLA format. Please do not write 2 pages of a list of the characteristics.
My topic is: Michigan Dialect and the differences in dialect between upper and lower Michigan
