Hi Jackson,

I'm sure the people on here who love to debate linguistic nuances endlessly will say this is too simple, but a dialect is just a way a subset of people speak a language, either because of location or social status or a combination of those factors.

If you travel to the deep South in the U.S., you will hear a very different dialect of English than if you travel to the highlands of Scotland.

What does just a way mean?

Please explain the meaning of dialect little further but in simple terms.

A dialect is the special way people from a given area of a country speak and write.

Sometimes, the spelling is different, or the meanings are different, or the pronunciation is different.
