Date: Fri, 15 Dec 1995 08:05:00 CST From: Tom Murray Subject: Dialect tapes Does anyone know of any good audio recordings that can be used to highlight the fact that the initial judgments we make about people--their ethnicity, SEC, et c.--when we can hear but not see them are often false? When I was in graduate school at Indiana in the late '70s and early '80s, one of my professors had a r eel-to-reel tape of about 30 speakers, black and white, various SECs, that made this point beautifully; but when I queried her recently, she said the tape had been used so much that it eventually wore out. I'll be grateful for any sugge stions. Thanks in advance. --Tom Murray
