Patrick" Subject: Re: An R-full mess Terry et al., Tom Veatch wrote a really interesting dissertation on dialects of American English a couple years ago and looked at (R) arguing it was a glide. His email is tv[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE], or veatch[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] His diss. was U. Penn 1991, "English Vowels: Their surface phonology and phonetic implementation in vernacular dialects". (He looked at data from Corky Feagin's Anniston Ala. study, my Jamaican Creole study in Kingston, Otto Santa Ana's Chicano English study, and Sherry Ash's Chicago White English data.) --peter patrick
