Oklahoma Accent - Ardmore, OK

The Oklahoma Historical Society has made audio interviews with early Oklahomans available on their youtube channel.  The earliest of these recordings were done in 1956 between high school seniors and early Oklahomans in Ardmore, OK. Due to the sheer number of recordings, and thereby the number of audio samples, this is the accent that we will be focusing the Evans family.

There are 42 audio recordings.
