January has been spent trying to formulate a set of criteria for the words in the database. This has been extremely hard as it is very difficult for one person to verify and make the choice on whether a word mets these specifications to stay in the database. This is where you come in!
I am looking for people to form a 'dialect committee'. This will require you to be available for group emails and possibly Skype conferences to discuss your knowledge of the words and come to an agreement with others as to whether each one meets the criteria. Ten people will form this group and you will have access to the unedited database. If you think this is something you would be interested in, please get in contact.
Aged 16 - 85
Living or have lived in South/North Shropshire or the surrounding boarders
Both city and rural backgrounds
An interest in language or local dialect is preferable
