I'm sorry, I took too long and they kicked me out! lol!

effingpot.com/slang.shtml ...food for thought
grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/writing-with-accents.aspx ...food for thought
email.eva.mpg.de/~wichmann/Wichmann&Davletshin2.pdf ...This is a credible source
utexas.edu/courses/jbaldrid/2006/computational-syntax/papers/ccg-is_spi.pdf ...another credible source

I am not sure what you're going for, but the bits up there might at least point you in the right direction. I believe it's all how some people frame their word order or sentence structure. It is also evident in common syntax and composition of words and thoughts. I have a hard time with other languages, for instance, because the word roots may be the same, but the usage is different. Do you like my but I was talking about your asses are great animals. You get the drift here?

Good luck! I hope you at least got some ideas (nothing fresh was meant by that!) lol!

You may have to copy and paste the links like I did...no tellin'

Why are you only asking guys to help you? Seems you're narrowing the field a bit, but what ever.

dialects and accents at school

It's because you are not using the right search terms. This is the same as writing about language barriers at school. So make those your search terms:

language barriers at school

There is so much written about that, it should be easy! But if you search ffor accent and dialect, you won't get as many good sources.

Use those search terms above in a big database, and you'll find what you need, I hope.

Here's an example of a dialect right here, *grin*

In my area "guys" is an informal form of the second-person plural. People in other regions might say "you guys," "y'all," or just "you." It is no more gender exclusive than "vosotros" would be in Spanish (although, admittedly, "vosotras" is gender exclusive).

I am from the States. When I visited Australia, I understood about 95% of what was being said ... until I meet people from the rural areas and then I needed a translator even though they were speaking English! The dialect and the accent was incredibly difficult for me.
