Subject: The Linguistic Autobiography: Addendum
One of my students introduced her oral report by saying that she is
"functionally" bidialectal. She talks "standard," but sings "country."
She was taught to play the guitar by a country singer in eastern
Kentucky. She gave us a few details, then picked up her guitar and
demonstrated her skill by belting out a Johnny Cash number.
