Joe Salmons, professor and a founder of the Wisconsin Englishes Project at UW-Madison, will explore the kinds of English spoken in our state, including pronunciation, words and word forms, and grammar. He will look at how key features of Wisconsin English have developed over time, how remarkably recent they are and how they are changing and becoming more distinct today. The Wisconsin Englishes Project is just developing a new set of maps about English in Wisconsin and we’ll walk through what they can tell us about language in the state.
