Subject: text query
I'm teaching a course for the first time next semester--"The American
Language." It's a no pre-requisite introductory course, the first half of
which will deal with history of the English language, and the second will
be devoted to English in North America--more or less an intro to
regional/social dialects here. Does anyone have an text
suggestions--especially for the dialect portion of the course, but I'm also
open to suggestions for the HotEL portion. I understand Wolfram's
"Dialects and American English" is out of print--I had been planning on
using it, but now am somewhat perplexed.
Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions.
