Date: Fri, 10 Oct 1997 11:11:00 -0700 From: Peter Richardson 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.
