In "Of Mice and Men" the characters use different and non-standard dialect. Steinbeck writes in Standard English in his descriptions, but why does he use non-standard dialects when the characters are speaking? What effect does it have?
I don't understand this question and it's really bugging me

Its how the people would've spoken at the time which creates an authentic effect of how society was modelled at the time.
