Language Study

Micah is doing a unit on the origin of languages and dialects.  He had a cumulative quiz yesterday and this was his mulitple choice question:

The language spoken by the mountaineers of West Virginia and Kentucky is:
an English dialect
a Franconian dialect

He chose "Appalachian" for the answer and promptly sent me a note asking if he could have "at least some" credit for it.  The correct answer is 'an English dialect.'  
I want to ask, "What's the difference?"  I'm giving the boy full credit.  :)
