Social Dialect and Speech Communication Proficiency.
Harms, L.S.
In Hawaii today, many persons find it a disadvantage to speak only the social dialect of their home speech communities. For those young adults who enter a University, the problem may be especially acute. The Speech Communication Center of the University of Hawaii is developing a measure of speech-communication proficiency that predicts the reaction of trained judges. Most importantly, it is engaged in a training program designed to enable those young adults who wish to modify social dialects to be able to do so at a reasonable cost. This paper constitutes a progress report: it describes the tutorial program presently used. (DO)
