Date: Tue, 11 Apr 1995 10:23:34 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Southern Shee-uhft Teaching transcription in HEL or in the Structure of P-D English to students in Central Georgia is always somewhat of a confusing chore because textbooks use examples that do not correspond to native pronunciation, but the confusion this morning in HEL was complicated by Charles Barber's use of RP to illustrate the sounds represented by symbols. Usually, I have to rely on some non-native speakers in the class for illustrations of variation in pronunciation, but the textbook provided all the variation we needed.
