Suggestions for Speech-Communication Research in Urban Settings.
Haney, Roger D.
Communication problems within an urban society are those of communication from the people to the city, communication from the city government to the people, and interpersonal interaction among the people. Communication to the city from the people has often taken the form of protests, occasionally leading to riots. The interpersonal communicator from the city to the people is usually the policeman. The problem with interpersonal relationships among the people themselves involves differences in language usage, especially among low-income groups. There is great need for speech communication research in this area, especially in order to determine whether or not language training in the schools can help end the difficulties that urban people have in interacting on a personal basis.
