Let's Tink About Dat: Interdental Fricatives in Cajun English.
Dubois, Sylvie; Horvath, Barbara M.
Language Variation and Change, v10 n3 p245-61 1998
Presents a variationist study in the speech of bilingual Cajuns in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana. Results show a complex interrelationship of age, gender, and social network. One major finding was a v-shaped age pattern (the young show a level of usage closer to the older generation) rather than the generational model that is expected. (Author/VWL)
