Subject: NPR interviews

I don't recall any references on these screens (pages?) to the August 24th

Weekend Sunday interviews with Joan Hall, Frederick Cassidy, and William

Labov. The first two gave a nice account of the DARE work, and Labov had

some interesting tape snippets illustrating the northern cities shift and

the southern shift. I sent off to NPR for the tapes and script, and just

used them to provoke a fine class discussion (i.e. lots of student

engagement) of slang, leveling, etc. They're good conversation starters,

and I'd recommend them to one and all.
