i don't know much about dialects but i do know they can be like accents. right? well english has the american and british accent we use many different slang words and vocabulary. that was probably a bad answer but i tried my hardest
Of course. Anytime you hear a distinct accent, that's a dialect. People from New Jersey sound very different from people in Texas. Dialects are usually specific to regions, thus an expression or term that would be common in, say, Mississippi, might be meaningless in Oregon. And I haven't even touched on the differences between British, Australian, Canadian and American English.
Cockney rhyming slang jumps immediately to mind. Thick Irish or Scottish brogues or heavy Texas accents could be considered dialects. Also idioms in any language that do not translate would be considered part of a dialect. "The crumblies" in Australia are your parents. Does anybody outside of Nebraska ask for "hep"? (Help)
A friend of mine went somewhere and was warmheartedly welcomed." Have you come here today?" She panicked and quickly answered with great fear, " No! I have not come to die. I have come to study please. Leave me alone" See what dialect can do?
Are Pidgin of West Africa and Engs as well as Sheng of East Africa English dialects?
