An Introduction To Appalachian English - The English Dialect That Needs To Be Preserved!

Mint Message

Appalachian English is interesting because it is a unique dialect of American English that can be found in the Appalachian region of the United States of America. This dialect is interesting for a variety of different reasons, such as the unique conjugations that can only be found in this particular version of English and no other versions of English in the modern world. This version of English can be found in certain parts of the southern portion of the Eastern United States, but you are most likely to find native speakers if you go to the Appalachian mountain regions of the United States.

We here at Mint Message have made a new video on our cool new YouTube channel to teach people about Appalachian English, but we will still give a description here in this article for those who like to read it. One unique feature of Appalachian English is that some words that are unique to Appalachian English can not be found anywhere else as well and words that are native to Elizabethian English are found in Appalachian English like the word afeared - a word that was common in the era of writers like Shakespeare, but has fallen out of favor in modern times.

With the rise of technology and many people working to speak modern English, there is a chance that this unique dialect of English could become endangered or extinct. Hopefully, though, Mint Message and other sources of technology can work to preserve this unique form of English for future generations!
