From the drawls heard in Texas to the dropped R's of the northeast, dialects abound in America. Each year, the American Dialect Society holds a conference to study the latest information on the subject.

This year's meeting in Boston begins today. Allan Metcalf, executive secretary of the American Dialect Society joins the show.
