New England United

New England United Regional Mobilization

On Saturday, October 27th, people from all walks of life will gather in Boston for a massive New England regional demonstration, part of a nationally coordinated day of protest against the war in Iraq called by United for Peace and Justice. Regional demonstrations will be held in 11 cities around the country. The New England event will start with a rally at the Boston Common bandstand starting at Noon, followed by a march to Copley Square from 2:00 to 3:00 PM.

Organizations across the region are working to build the October 27th mobilization. Please join us! We the People must end this war! Together we can build a social movement that can stop this war and shift the political agenda in this country to further global justice and fund human needs.

The Dialects of Northern New England

They examine dialect variation in New Hampshire, Vermont, and the bordering region of Quebec, looking particularly at variation that can be attributed to patterns of migration of various ethnic groups.

Describing the dialects of Northern New England

The Boston accent is among the most well-known in America, and the most frequently mentioned aspects of it are "dropped R's" and the fronted vowel in phrases like park the car. Very little scholarly research about the dialects of Massachusetts and New Hampshire has been published since the Linguistic Atlas of New England in the 1930's.
