In the May 2018 issue, Charlie Farrington, Tyler Kendall and Valerie Fridland published “Vowel dynamics in the Southern Vowel Shift.” This work comes out of Tyler and Valerie’s production/perception study, and was Charlie’s second qualifying paper.
Appearing in the same issue, Charlotte Vaughn, Tyler Kendall and Kaylynn Gunter’s article, “Probing the social meaning of English adjective intensifiers as a Class Lab Project” was included as part of the annual Teaching American Speech section.
And lastly, Charlotte and Tyler’s paper, “Listener sensitivity to probabilistic conditioning of sociolinguistic variables: The case of (ING)” will be included in the December 2018 issue of the Journal of Memory and Language. It is available online now!
