Sledd responded to comments made by Montgomery about Sledd's objectivity in "Breaking, Umlaut, and the Southern Drawl," Language 42.1 (1966): 18-41. Sledd distributed about a thirty-page, single-spaced handout, which included spectrographs of his own pronunciation. I no longer have a copy of that handout (that I can find). At the end of the session, which Montgomery chaired, Mufwene stood up and said some diplomatic things to fill the embarrassing void. It was another one of those ADS-last-morning-on-the last-day-SAMLA sessions in which all the hangovers seemed to generate cotton in the artificial hotel air.
