Dear Ray

Thank you for the reply, it is much appreciated. No matter I will write to them to see if it cannot be rectified. You comment is noteworthy regarding linguistics, yet such is the nature of the beast, once a field of study expands in depth, it becomes a so-called hydra of extensions (in many instances anyway).

Now, regarding dialects, the scope is slightly negative as you have pointed out, yet this seems to be a trend, as globalization forces more languages and dialects into extinction. I have noted negative feeling between dialect users in Korea, China and other Asian countries and a degree of dialectal profiling by certain people. In all honesty however there is also the factor that negative information has the tendency to spread faster than positive information.

There are a few interesting sources of information below:
