The Sound of English: A Bibliography of Language Recordings.
Linn, Michael D.; Zuber, Maarit-Hannele
Designed to help teachers locate commercially available sound recordings that illustrate historical, regional, and national varieties of English, this booklet lists tapes and records under one of seven headings: (1) history of the English language, (2) historical periods of English, (3) American English, (4) modern non-American dialects, (5) voices of notable Americans, (6) authors reading their own works, (7) and regional music. The items under each heading are arranged in alphabetical order by title. Following the title is the name of the reader, editor or author, and producer, and--when it could be determined--the date of the recording. The format (record/cassette/reel-to-reel) and item number precedes the recording's approximate length in minutes. The suggested audience is mentioned at the end of the identification line. A list of producers and distributors immediately follows the bibliographic entries. Three indexes--a recording title index, a regional languages and dialects index, and a literature by author index--complete the booklet. (HOD).
