In Mark Twain’s, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, dialect is used very cleverly throughout the book. Jim, a slave, experiences the most throughout the book because his dialogue is full of improper words and phrases. An example of this is “Yes. You know that one-laigged n***** dat belongs to old Misto Brandish? Well, he sot up a bank, en say anybody dat put in a dollar would git fo’ dollars mo’ at de en’ er de year.” (41) This quote shows a lot about Jim’s education and how he lacks the ability to pronounce some words correctly. In this quote also, it has the use of the n word which is less commonly used today than what it was in the past. I think that Twain’s use of dialect in this novel is very smart and how it correctly represents the dialect of the time period that the book takes place is truly a work of art.
