Idiolectal Variation in Helsinki Urban Speech
Paunonen, Heikki
Linguistics, 183, 125-140, Dec 76
Describes a study showing how a linguistic pattern of alternation affecting an entire speech community is realized in individual idiolects; an example representative of colloquial Helsinki speech is used. Results support observations already presented by Labov, according to which linguistic change is linguistically structured to a very high degree. (CFM)
