More on the Third Dialect of English: Linguistic Constraints on the Use of Three Phonological Variables in Pittsburgh.
McElhinny, Bonnie
Language Variation and Change, v11 n2 p171-95 1999
Discusses the Third Dialect (Labov 1991, 1994), offering the first systematic variationist analysis of speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with particular focus on three phonological processes. Argues that Veatch's (1991) model of English syllable structure provides a unified account of these seemingly unrelated phonological changes in Pittsburgh. (Author/VWL)
