    He was writing in the 1800′s so the vocabulary is dated. I cannot remember where in Europe this story is supposed to be taking place. Italy? Spain, maybe?Poe himself was American.

    I think what people commonly do is misinterpret and misdefine what the term “dialect” is.Dialect refers to the way a person talks, their speech, and what type; some people define it by the region (thus an accent or way of speaking) and others by social stance (for instance, a person of nobility and higher-ranking would more likely be smarter and more intelligent, so it would be evident in their speech). Though not directly related to an accent, a dialect is closely similar.Now, in The Tell-Tale Heart, I personally felt that the narrator’s dialect was of high standing. He (I’m pretty sure it was a he) spoke eloquently and as if he were better than the world and reality itself. It was a justification of murdering the old, undeserving man. The narration indicates very obviously that he has no motive in life but to feel contentment.In my opinion, this is where almost everything about the dialect is revealed (the introductory paragraph):TRUE! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.
