Walt Wolfram Introduces Chancellor Woodson to southeastern NC


When it comes to dialects, North Carolina is one of the nation’s richest states. Dr. Walt Wolfram, William C. Friday Distinguished University professor and director of the North Carolina Language and Life Project recently introduced new NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson to some of that linguistic diversity as they toured around Pembroke, where Wolfram has done considerable research on Lumbee dialects and culture. Pictured left to right are CHASS alum David Oxendine (Ph.D., Psy), Woodson, Lumbee Indian dialect subject Georgia Locklear, Vice Chancellor for Engagement Jim Zuiches, and Wolfram.
