Thread Name: Singing in dialect
Subject: RE: Folklore: Singing in dialect
The dialects of the the South have died out to the point where the old stories and songs would not be understandable to people who have descended from that heritage. See thread 59230, running now, on Georgia plantation songs: Harris Songs
A very simplified version of the dialect, in order to preserve some of the flavor, may be best.
