The Social Dimension of the Southern Vowel Shift: Gender, Age, and Class.
Fridland, Valerie
Journal of Sociolinguistics, v5 n2 p233-53 May 2001
Examines how successfully changes in the high- and mid-front and -back vowels in the South are being disseminated throughout a local urban community, and how these changes fit in with changes occurring in other American dialects. Weighs the attraction to local or national norms in determining success and diffusion of shifts relative to the social environment in which they are developing. (Author/VWL)
