Subject: vowel laxing
I am doing some dialect work on vowel laxing in Wichita, Kansas and
Kansas City, Kansas. (eg. Does "really" rhyme with "silly"? Is "while"
a homophone of "wall"?) If anyone knows of any good sources on tense
versus lax vowels or any related studies, I would really appreciate any
information about them.
