The five highly praised volumes of Robert Hendrickson's Dictionary of American Regional Expressions seriesHappy Trails, Mountain Range, New Yawk Tawk, Whistlin' Dixie, and Yankee Talk—are gathered in this impressive one-volume collection.

The Facts On File Dictionary of American Regionalisms retains the regional divisions of the individual volumes. A comprehensive index allows readers to find all listed words and expressions quickly and easily. This combined resource also provides new material on minor American dialects, such as Gullah, Pennsylvania Dutch, and Hawaii Da Kine. Plus, dialects heard around the country—from Baltimore to Long Island, Boston to Chicago. Extracted from novels, poetry, legends, newspapers, and other sources, these thousands of expressions, anecdotes, pronunciations, and idioms—both historical and contemporary—will entertain and enlighten students, researchers, and general readers.
