The First Lincolnland Conference on Dialectology.
Griffith, Jerry, Ed.; Miner, L. E., Ed.
The First Lincolnland Conference on Dialectology, held at Eastern Illinois University in March 1968, was attended by linguists and speech pathologists specializing in the areas of speech science, dialects, articulation disorders, language development and language disorders. The purposes of the conference were: (1) to review research dealing with the generative rules utilized in dialects; (2) to discuss various theoretical and clinical approaches to the evaluation and management of dialectolalia; (3) to determine major areas of agreement and disagreement; and (4) to consider possible areas for further research. Of special interest was the possible role of the speech clinician in the teaching of standard English to speakers of non-standard dialects. Original papers prepared for the Conference and presented in this volume are: Marvin Carmony, "Some Phonological Rules of an Indiana Dialect"; Fred M. Chreist, "Notes on a Philosophy of Disordered Communication: Language Aspects"; James F. Curtis, "Segmenting the Stream of Speech"; Charles G. Hurst, Jr., "Basic Factors Relating to Development of a Dialect by Disadvantaged Children"; Thomas H. Shriner, "Social Dialect and Language"; Harris Winitz, "Articulatory Acquisition: Some Behavioral Considerations"; Paula Menyuk, "The Role of Distinctive Features in Children's Acquisition of Phonology."
