Appalachian Speech

Record #:
The Appalachian region of the United States, including the western mountains of North Carolina, has a unique dialect formed by the Scotch-Irish settlement of the region before and after the Revolutionary War. Isolated by the rugged terrain of the Appalachian region, communities still speak in a manner that has not changed much when compared to other regions of the country.
