    47 Years in the Making

    http://www.voanews.com/english/news/...icanlingo.html

    Work on the Dictionary of American Regional English - known by its acronym DARE - began in 1965 under Frederic Cassidy, an English professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He and a team of 80 researchers traveled across the United States to document words used by Americans to describe their daily lives.

    Joan Houston Hall, the dictionary’s chief editor, says the final project is based on almost 2.5 million responses to more than 1600 questions.
    Hope you do not honeyfuggle. (Looks like spell checker has seen that word before).

    Fixed the link.
