St. Norbert College Language Services Presents “Beyond the Bubbler” Workshop on Wisconsin Dialects

From St. Norbert College, May 15, 2015
by Erich Wegenke, erich.wegenke@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

St. Norbert College Language Services will present a workshop on Saturday, June 6, titled "Beyond the Bubbler: Wisconsin Dialects." The workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on the college campus (specific location to be determined).

The workshop will be led by North Carolina State University linguistics graduate student Michael Fox, who will discuss what goes into Wisconsin accents and dialects, and how specific regionalisms -- such as the use of "bubbler" for "drinking fountain" -- have arisen.

The cost of the workshop is $30 per person; the registration deadline is Friday, May 22, 2015. Those who wish to register can do so by visiting http://www.snc.edu/languageservices/cultureworkshops/dialect.html.
