Linguistic Atlas of Kansas (LAKGD) and Missouri (LAMGD) German Dialects
Since 1980, Professor William D. Keel and his graduate students at the University of Kansas have recorded speakers of German dialects in Kansas and Missouri. This collection contains packaged excerpts from the recorded interviews, edited to preserve the privacy of participants. The recordings contain data collected from dialect questionnaires developed in Germany and the USA, along with free speech conversation, anecdotes, jokes, songs and recipes. These are the source recordings for excerpts that are also found on the LAKGD and LAMGD websites.
