DARE Almost Done

The AP profiles the Dictionary of American Regional English today, noting that the fifth and final volume, covering Sl through Z, is set for publication next year thanks to a $295,000 NSF grant.

One interesting tidbit from the report: original project editor Frederic Cassidy died in 2000: his tombstone reads "On to Z!"

Following publication of the final volume, editors say they plan an online edition of the DARE.
