Description:
 Mr. McClelland will give a multimedia presentation discussing how Ohio's 19th century settlement patterns are still reflected in modern dialects that are sometimes no more than 50 miles apart! He'll also share such interesting facts as why "Broadcaster English" is based on the speech of 1920s northeastern Ohio, and he'll provide photographs illustrating such terms as "devil strip," "city chicken," and "party plates"--all of which are uniquely Ohioan.
