comment What is the denotation of 方言?
My impression is that 日本大百科全書 (ニッポニカ) in this part doesn't claim to explain how 方言 is used in Japanese, but rather tries to make the point that in general it is difficult to draw a line between "language" and "dialect". In particular, I think that this passage in fact uses 方言 with the same meaning as the English "dialect".

comment What is the denotation of 方言?
I meant to link to the 大辞林 part of the kotobank page (which I did, but I agree it wasn't obvious since kotobank lists the entries of all its sources on the same page). The text you are citing is from the 方言 entry in 日本大百科全書 (ニッポニカ) in the section 言語と方言, which you might want to say in your answer. (kotobank deserves to be mentioned, too, but it is only an interface to various dictionaries and encyclopideae.)

comment Difference between もう いい です and もう けっこう です
Then I recommend you look up why and how they are different, because they are so very different... A simple dictionary look-up (e.g. on jisho.org) will already put you miles ahead of where you were when you thought that もう and も were the same.
