DIALECT
Dialect is a specific form of language that is peculiar to a specific region or group of people.
We ALL have our own dialect.
Grammar, punctuation, and vocabulary all influence a person's dialect. Our dialect is different from people in other parts of Australia.
Because the book takes place in Alabama, the characters in
To Kill A Mockingbird
also have a unique dialect. Many of the words they use include
contractions.
"Ah -- I won
'em
from him."
"Won
them
? How?"
"We were
playin'
strip poker
up yonder by the fishpool."
What do you notice about the difference between
Atticus' language and Dill's?
What does this tell us about the two characters?
How do you know?
11. Your turn: With a partner, identify three examples of contractions used on pgs. 102-103. Write each one down. Then, next to it, write how it would be written without the contraction.
EXAMPLE:
"I won
'em
from him"
=
"I won
them
from him"
From the Bible: one of the three captives who came out of the fiery furnace miraculously unharmed: Dan. 3:12-27
A mild soap
Clothing; attire
A particular district in a city
A bad-smelling gum resin from plants used to treat disease or prevent illness
A printing process
Things preventing progress, especially on a trip (An impediment is something that gets in the way). An impedimenta is something specific like luggage, supplies, or equipment that an army would carry.

One of the most important books ever written on English law
