An Annotated Bibliography of Southern Speech.
Pederson, Lee A.
The 190 titles described here have been selected to provide a convenient reference guide for students of language who are concerned with regional and social variations in Southern speech. The area covered is not only that of the eleven states of the historical South, but Kentucky, Oklahoma, and West Virginia as well. The only specific aim of the bibliography is to serve educators concerned with non-pathological problems of linguistic deviation in the South, and therefore only those items are included which might be useful to the classroom teacher or the researcher concerned with regional and social dialect problems. The bibliography is in three parts: (1) Bibliographies, including current and completed indices; (2) Structural Descriptions, including overviews, regions, subregions, individual states, and structural features of phonology, morphology, and syntax; and (3) Cultural Interpretations, including sociological and literary manipulations of data.
