Word Ways


Philip M. Cohen


Everybody knows of English English, American English, and Pidgin English. Many know of dialects of other languages, such as High and Low German, or Lake and Bodega Miwok. However, certain obscurer dialects are harder to find in the literature: Alto Saxon, for instance, or Super Yuman. The Cornell Linguistics Circle has prepared a list of some of these lesser-known dialects, and Word Ways has been granted permission to reproduce it for the benefit of its readers. Further contributions from readers would be welcome.
