The United States of America defines no official language in its Constitution, though Standard American English (SAE) is commonly considered its national linguistic variety. Geographically speaking, however, there exist roughly 30 major dialects in the US — not yet taking many other linguistic varieties spoken within this nation into account, defined by features such as culture and ethnicity, for instance. It is precisely the more broad-scaled consideration of such sociolinguistic aspects that will lead us into looking at other, less-known varieties of American English, such as Cajun Vernacular English, Chicano English, New York English, amongst others, and their respective grammatical characteristics in more detail.
