Jesse Jackson: nasal levelling? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 1 Jul 1995 12:08:12 -0700 From: Anton Sherwood Subject: Jesse Jackson: nasal levelling? When Jesse Jackson speaks, I think I'm hearing pre-stop nasals weakened, and vowels before medial voiced stops lightly nasalized, so that medial /d/ merges with /nd/. Is that a dialect feature -- and if so, what dialect -- or is he just congested? Anton Sherwood *\\* +1 415 267 0685 *\\* DASher[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
