"An important reference work not only for its descriptions of language in the South but also as a record of the development of scholars' understanding of the interaction between language and its users in a changing South."--Connie C. Eble, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
"This volume represents the best new research on language variation from some of the region's premier scholars, and gives direction to the study of the language of the South in a manner that says, 'Welcome to the New South.'"--Allison Burkette, The University of Mississippi
