dc.description.abstractThis study investigates a small portion of the lexicon, those words related to farming, of the people of southwest Georgia. Changes in agriculture in the past thirty years have drastically altered farming methods and have created a population lesscentered on agriculture today than it was in the 1970’s. This study investigates how these changes have affected the language of the people, and in so doing how cultural changes fuel linguistic variation and change. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of these changes in areas of the lexicon, related to farming and farm life, of southwest Georgia speakers in terms of lexical variation and lexical change since the 1970’s. It uses data from the Linguistic Atlas of the Gulf States along with newly collected linguistic atlas-style data to investigate these questions.
