American Languages: Our Nation's Many Voices

American Languages is a project begun in 2003 under the auspices of a three-year National Leadership grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to digitize, interpret, and make accessible audio recordings documenting linguistic diversity in the United States. The main partners in this project are the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies (MKI), the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures (CSUMC), the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE), and the University of Wisconsin Libraries, all at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. <more>
