Alabama Dialects: South
Season 4 Episode 8 | 28m 2s
Our language and speech do much to define who we are. Journey Proud welcomes linguist Dr. Anna Head in a trek across Lower Alabama from Elba to Mobile talking to a number of folks about their speech and what it means to them. In doing so, we will learn about the Confederate Vowel and unvoiced obstruents.
