Frazer" Subject: Re: variants: markers, indexes, stereotypes? Somewhere, Labov classes variants in the following ways, tho my memory is imperfect: 1. Those that are not perceived by the community but are detectable as variants by objective oberservation. 2. Those that people respond to on something like a subjective reaction test but can't describe (?) 3. Those that people are overtly aware of, and can, say, imitate. I seem to recall that there are names for these: markers, indexes, stereotypes? I thought this was in Sociolinguistic Patterns, 1972, but I can't find it. CAn anyone help to correct my imperfect memory and also tell me where to find it? I need this today! I'll come back online this afternoon. Tim Frazer
