Negative Prestige, Linguistic Insecurity, and Linguistic Self-Hatred
Macaulay, Ronald K. S.
Lingua, 36, 2-3, 147-161, Jun 75
The problem of investigating linguistic attitudes in urban speech communities is considered in connection with three studies, in New York, Quebec, and Glasgow. Methodological problems raise questions regarding the reliability of the conclusions, suggesting that a more systematic approach to the study of linguistic attitudes is needed. (Author/AM)
