Network of volunteers will help update dialect survey

Seventy years ago, nine Leeds researchers set out to record and map dialects from all corners of the country, carrying out the most comprehensive survey of English dialects ever conducted. Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund the survey will now be updated and digitised. Dr Fiona Douglas from the School of English, who is leading, said: “The project will preserve this invaluable cultural legacy for future generations.”
