  7. 7. Comparing and Contrasting American English Versus British English:
  8. 8.  It can be difficult to understand a story if the characters speak a different dialect than you. Authors write the dialect the way it sounds, so that it might not look like standard English words.  This is shown in the third example above. Howahrya isn't a real word. It's ”how are you squished together” so you know the speaker didn't leave a gap between them. And instead of you, the author wrote ”ya” so you know how to say the word you the way it is said in New York.
  9. 9.  When authors write conversations in dialect, they use spellings and punctuation that might not look like English. Sometimes the meaning, or the way the words are put together into sentences, is different.  This makes it difficult to understand. When you're looking at dialect written in a story, sound out the words the way they're spelt, and say them out loud. Reading dialect aloud can help you figure out the words.
  10. 10. Why Do Authors Use Dialect in Stories, Poems or Plays?  If a story or play is set in a particular time period or location, authors use dialect to help set the scene. If a story is set in Alabama, for example, characters wouldn't use the same dialect as people from Minnesota. Dialect makes the story sound more realistic, interesting and gives the author a sense of authenticity.
