Dialect Discussions

Continuing the exploration of regional and local dialects, Assistant Village Idiot has a new post on a recently revised U.S. dialect map.  I'll have to read into the original research further to see if it explains why one of my southeastern Massachusetts cousins scared me when we were kids by saying, "I'll have to axe my mother."  I just wanted to know if we could go to an afternoon movie, I wasn't trying to incite violence!
