    The remote and isolated location of Michigan's UP, combined with contact among English, Finnish, French, Anisinaabemowin and other languages, have shaped Yooper talk over the last 150 years.  Kate Remlinger (PhD, MTU) will discuss the history and development of 'Yooper Talk' (the title of her book) and why it remains distinct from other varieties of American English.
