Bostonians, like Texans, Georgians, and the British, have their own version of the English language: this is its Rosetta Stone. Natives can brush up on their dialect, and travelers or newcomers to the "Hub of the Universe" can learn how to communicate with the indigenous folk. The Boston Dictionary is now widely considered a classic book of Bostonian Humor, a best-seller wherever books or gifts are sold in Boston and surrounding.

New England and Canada's Maritime provinces share centuries-old connections. In New England and the Maritime Provinces leading scholars examine this important relationship through analysis of themes common to both regions and show the effects of the evolution of the region from a borderland with ill-defined boundaries to a bordered land with defined political borders. They demonstrate that such boundaries are never absolute and that in some ways the region remains a social, cultural, and environmental borderland.
