Weil, Karen S.; Fitch, James L.; Wolfe, Virginia I.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v33 n2 p151-63 Mar-Apr 2000

Results showed that diphthongs used in Southern English were shorter and had less noticeable transitional elements than those in Standard American English. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
