Cross-Dialectal Comprehension as Evidence for Boundary Mapping: Perceptions of the Speech of Southeastern Ohio.
Flanigan, Beverly Olson; Norris, Franklin Paul
Language Variation and Change, v12 n2 p175-201 2000
A cross-dialectal comprehension test was conducted at Ohio University and three of its branch campuses. Results indicated that vowel changes occurring in Southern Ohio were generally interpreted by respondents in terms of their own vowel systems, and that limited exposure to the local dialect by outsiders led to recognition only of the more salient or stereotyped sounds.
