The 200 pronunciation maps in this volume are based on the material of the Survey of English Dialects, which was collected from over 300 localities between 1948 and 1961. The maps follow a simple system for indicating pronunciations based on common sounds of the ordinary letters of the English alphabet, and are accompanied by an introduction to the language of dialects, a key to pronunciation, maps showing county boundaries and a general index.
