Determining the Presence of a Vernacular Region in the Mississippi Delta.
MetadataShow full item record
A vernacular region is defned by people's perceptions. This research project examined the Mississippi-Yazoo Delta to analyze vernacular names associated with the Delta. My preliminary hypothesis is that there is a presence of a vernacular region associated with the Delta area. The use of these terms in names of businesses will determine the presence or absence of a vernacular region. The data were mapped to analyze the intensity of vernacular names.
