On the other side of this question, I remember picking up a book once that had someone thinking in Scots dialect. I decided that any writer dumb enough to imagine that people think in dialect wasn't worth reading.

I'm not so sure people don't think in dialect. I think some thoughts are definitely encoded in audio.

Also, using dialect to represent inner thought is most likely a literary device (and not a bad one!) rather than an effort to be scientifically accurate.
