A Manual for Investigating American English in the South: Field Procedures.
Dumas, Bethany K.
Designed for persons interested in using "A Manual for Investigating American English in the South: Field Procedures" as a tool rather than using the approach suggested in the manual, this guide provides a preliminary set of instructions for using the manual, including comments on appropriate fieldwork orientation. Section II outlines the responsibilities of: (1) individual field workers, and (2) a suggested "resident director" or "administrative assistant" who would be responsible for providing orientation to the goals and research design of the project. Section III describes procedures for setting up interviews and provides guidelines for preparing all equipment and the speaking manual prior to arriving at someone's home for an interview plus general principles governing conduct during the "Part I, Conversation" section in the manual. Instructions are included in this section for final steps of the interview: classifying and making tapes and questionnaires; securing a release form, and completing the data sheet. Contains 14 references. (NH)
