Women and Sound Change: Conservative and Innovative Behavior by the Same Speakers.
Maclagan, Margaret A.; Gordon, Elizabeth; Lewis, Gillian
Language Variation and Change, v11 n1 p19-41 1999
Addresses Labov's claim that sound changes that are not stigmatized are led especially by young women who are the "movers and shakers" in the community, people with energy and enterprise. Investigated the claim by comparing the pronunciation of non-stigmatized front vowels with that of stigmatized diphthongs in New Zealand English. (Author/VWL)
