Subject: Re: 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.

can you supply address of NPR? What's the cost of the tape and script?
