Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) New

DARE is different from other dictionaries in that it does not include words that are commonly used throughout the United States, but rather focuses on the regional aspects of our language, documenting words, phrases, and pronunciations that vary from one place to another. Widely viewed as the American equivalent of the Oxford English Dictionary, DARE represents the full panoply of American regional vocabulary—from Adam’s housecat to Zydeco. Contradicting the popular notion that American English has become homogenized, DARE demonstrates that our language still has distinct and delightful local character. Whether we are talking about foods, games, clothing, family members, animals, or almost any other aspect of life, our vocabulary reveals much about who we are. DARE celebrates the color, richness, and evolution of the English language across America.

Dictionary of Old English
"The Dictionary of Old English (DOE) defines the vocabulary of the first six centuries (600 - 1150 A.D.) of the English language, using today's most advanced technology. The DOE complements the Middle English Dictionary (which covers the period 1100 - 1500 A.D.) and the Oxford English Dictionary (which documents the development of the English language to the present), the three together providing a full description of the vocabulary of English.

The Dictionary draws on as wide a range of texts -- in date, dialect and genre -- as possible. It differs from previous dictionaries in several important features: a listing in a simplified paradigmatic order of every spelling which is attested for a word in the Electronic Corpus; frequency counts for each word in the corpus so that readers can know what proportion of the evidence has been cited; usage labels where they are statistically significant, noting restrictions to a class of texts, to an author, or to a particular period or dialect; exhaustive citation for all words of twelve or fewer occurrences." (description taken from publisher)

eHRAF World Cultures
HRAF is an acronym for Human Relations Area Files, a non-profit institution founded in 1949 at Yale University. HRAF is a consortium of educational, research, and cultural organizations, and government agencies; its mission is to encourage and facilitate the study of human culture, society, and behavior. This mission is accomplished mainly through the compilation, indexing, and distribution of a collection of ethnographic and other texts that are indexed by culture and subject. Today, HRAF has over 400 member institutions located in over 30 nations. In its early years the collection was distributed on paper slips. In 1958, HRAF began to reproduce the paper slips on microfiche. Microfiche reproduction ended in 1991, and all new material as well as retrospective conversion and updating of existing material began with the release of eHRAF on CD-ROM in April 1995. (eHRAF stands for the electronic collections of HRAF.) Currently HRAF has collections of ethnography, available on both CD-ROM and WWW. In 1998 HRAF began distributing a collection of archaeology in both formats. While all material currently on microfiche remains available on the fiche format, no new microfiche installments are being produced and all material added after 1991 is available only in electronic form.

The current edition of Twentieth Century North American Drama contains the full text of 319 plays by 53 playwrights. Each play is itself richly indexed, allowing both keyword and multi-fielded searching. Some 25 of the plays are published here for the first time, including a number by major authors. The structure of this database is unique; it has been built around the core elements of drama - not just the authors, but the performers, the productions, the companies, the theaters as well as the plays themselves. The database indexes information on related productions, theaters, and production companies, as well as selected playbills, production photographs and other related ephemera. This database allows users to examine and understand North American Theatre of the past century in ways that have never been possible before.

For 1915-1978 the source is the Library of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, a nationally recognized research facility and the single largest member supported law library in the United States.

SCRB features a fully searchable database of approximately 11 million pages and more than 350,000 separate documents. Approximately 150,000 Supreme Court cases are featured, the majority consisting of those for which the Court did not give a full opinion.
