Geesh! Any chance they could ALL be correct?

A dialect is indeed a less complex version of an official language. It is true also that it is a localized lexicon, meaning that it is different from place to place, and that most people who share the same location will have a tendency to share that unique characteristic particularly because communication is the most frequently used tool among human beings in a similar group. It is also true that not only Eastern, but Southern, Northern, Midwestern and Southwestern English are spoken with differentiations of the same language. I live in Alabama and trust me I can attest to that coming from Seattle! It is also true that every modern language has a dialect, including English and that using dialects are not directly proportional to a level of education, yet, educated people would prefer to avoid certain colloquialisms even within their dialect in comparison with people of less acumen.
