A professor at the University of Virginia at Wise, Amy Clark, told us that's not always true for those people speaking Appalachian dialects.
Dialect includes the words, grammar and accent we use to speak. "As a student I remember hearing that you should never speak that way or you'll never get anywhere if you speak that way," said Clark. She told us she never agreed with that and even wrote a book about the importance of preserving regional dialects. She points out in her book, Talking Appalachian, that her dialect represents the rich history of this region. "Some of the words that we use date back to Old English," said Clark. As for dialect, Amy Clark is teaching her students Standard American English but she's not suggesting they abandon their heritage when it comes to the way they talk. "Everyone has a very personal reason why they speak the way that they do and everyone should have that choice to make the change they want to," said Clark.
