North Carolina Dialect: Chesnutt Style


Abstract:
Charles Waddell Chesnutt gained recognition and enlarged North Carolina's place on the literary map during the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries with a significant contribution of tales, short stories, and novels set in the Tar Heel State. His understanding of the subtleties of diction and his rendering of distinctive speech patterns according to class, race, and region contributed to his success as an author.
