Synopsis
Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Emory University, the "Linguistic Atlas of the Gulf States" is a comprehensive study of speech variations in an eight-state region (Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and eastern Texas.) The project encompasses more than 5000 hours of taped interviews with more than 1100 individuals in urban and rural areas. Conducted according to subjects outlined in preliminary work-sheets the interviews record respondents' expressions and descriptions of the places, people, and objects in their particular locales. Including the same systematically contrastive forms and features reported in the Regional Matrix (Volume 4), this volume uses 6,578 social summaries and 400 maps to link word usage, grammatical forms and pronunciation with the sex, race, age, education and social class of the study's 914 primary informants.
