Relative Salience of Gender and Class in a Situation of Multiple Competing Norms.
Cravens, Thomas D.; Giannelli, Luciano
Language Variation and Change, v7 n2 p261-85 1995
Examines the social parameters of acceptance and spread of intervocalic spirantization of "/p/,/t/,/k/" in Tuscany to test the salience of gender and class. This sociolinguistic analysis of the interaction of three options provides a more precise understanding of the significance of gender and class as (co)-conditioners of variation and change.
