New Database: DARE–Dictionary of American Regional English

DAREThe Georgia State University Library is pleased to announce the addition of the online version of DARE: Dictionary of American Regional English to our collections.

Each DARE entry defines a regional word or phrase, provides pronunciation and etymology, identifies the region of the U.S. where that word or phrase is used, and supplies quotations which demonstrate the meaning of the word or phrase.  Words common across the U.S., or those that are highly technical or obscure, are not included in DARE.

To access DARE, please select the linked letter D under the heading Databases by Name A–Z on the Library’s homepage.  For instructions on how to use or customize your use of DARE, please see How to Use Dare.
