What is an idiolect?

Amy Stoller

We spend most of our time on IDEA cataloguing dialects and accents by geographic area. So how do idiolects fit into our understanding of an individual’s speech patterns? Find out the answer to this question by listening to IDEA Founder and Director Paul Meier’s latest edition of his free monthly podcast. In the December edition of In a Manner of Speaking, Paul discusses idiolects with Amy Stoller. In addition to being a renowned dialect coach and designer, Amy is an IDEA associate editor and creator of the Stoller System. See her website to appreciate the full range of her work.
