In 2019, Prof. Stanford published "New England English: Large-Scale Acoustic Sociophonetics and Dialectology," the most up-to-date scholarly study of Boston-area speech patterns. To conduct the eight-year study, his team interviewed about 1,600 New Englanders. The story features some fun sound clips of native Bostonian accents. See the full story here:
