Here are a few aspects of Wisconsin English varieties that we are investigating:
- Perceptions of English: "Dialects," "Accents," and "Standard English"
- Ethnicity and Language
- Effects of other languages on Wisconsin English
We're just about to launch some surveys about language in Wisconsin … we'll post links to online materials when they're ready.

The Wisconsin Speech Chain Online (WiSCO) provides a dynamic mapping module that helps students think geographically about language variation and change and allows them to interact with their speech patterns and those of other students from different regions.
