Date: Thu, 9 Dec 1993 22:30:56 EST From: David Bergdahl Subject: response to gwyn Dear Gwyn, About 10-12 years ago a Public Broadcasting Series on language entitled "The Story of English" was produced with popular PBS presenter Robert MacNeil as "host" as we say. These tapes might be interesting to your students because they included the speech of a number of varieties of English [their preferred term over dialect] both here in the US as well as GB, Aus & NZ, India &c. There's also a companion text. David Bergdahl Ohio University/Athens "Gateway to West Virginia" BERGDAHL [AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] OUVAXA.CATS.OHIOU.EDU Received: 08-Dec-1993 09:15am
