There is no finer filmed intro to language variation, I think, than
"American Tongues" (ca. 55 minutes). Get it from New American Media. It's
head and shoulders above the rest -- all filmed on location. It's
accurate AND occasionally funny. WHen I show it to Ling 200 students they
invariably ask me to show it again and let them bring their friends.
I have prepared an unauthorized detailed index of contents which I would
be willing to share with the list, if there is interest. Or perhaps someone
else also has prepared one and we could put them together?
