New website to feature 1939 Smoky Mountain field recordings of Appalachian speech

Morgan Simmons / Knoxville News Sentinel
On April 13 Hall's complete interviews will be available online for the first time in both audio and text form. A sampling of those interviews currently is posted on the Dictionary of Smoky Mountain English website at www.cas.sc.edu/engl/dictionary. After April 13, the public can visit that website to find the address of the new website dedicated to Hall's work in capturing the stories and speech of pre-World War II Appalachia.
