This morning’s Houston Chronicle has an article about Hans Boas from UT Austin and the Texas German Dialect Project he founded and directs. You don’t need any commentary from me – go straight to Hans’ site and explore. It’s fantastic.
*I have called this “(North) Texas German of coruse simply because we are around n in the alphabet for language of the week, and the Houston Chronicle article was too good an opportunity to waste. Like Southern Narigo or Northern Csango, it’s an artificial boundary.
