about

Migration, Accommodation, and Language Change: Language and the Intersection of Regional and Ethnic Identity marries qualitative ethnographic methods to quantitative acoustic methods. The analysis describes the differences between internal and external factors in phonological change and demonstrates how these two forces interact in structuring the phonological systems of Appalachian and African American Southern Migrant speakers in the Detroit, Michigan area.
