Summary "Appalachian Englishes in the Twenty-First Century provides a complete exploration of English in Appalachia for a broad audience of scholars and educators. Starting from the premise that just as there is no single Appalachia, there is no single Appalachian dialect, Kirk Hazen's essay collection brings together varied perspectives on language variation in this region. They are attentive to the full range of linguistic expression, from everyday spoken grammar to subversive Dale Earnhardt memes"-- Provided by publisher
