Word Maps

While we work on adding a mapping feature to the site, users are invited to peruse our word map section, which surveys some of the regional dialects and usage patterns we've already noticed in our larger collection of 10,000 letters.

Introduction provides a quick look at the mapping of 19c. English.

Regional Features collects the terms most peculiar to each of the regions.

Word Maps examines some forty words, terms, and phrases in context and maps the hometown location of letter writers who used them.
