  • THE DICTIONARY OF CANADIANISMS ON HISTORICAL PRINCIPLES, SECOND EDITION
           AND REGIONAL VARIATION: THE COMPLEX CASE OF NEWFOUNDLAND

    • Authors: Stefan Dollinger
      Abstract: This short and informal account speaks briefly to the problem of regionalisms in the context of Canadian English as it relates to the forthcoming Second Edition of the Dictionary of Canadianisms on Historical Principles, DCHP-2, which I have had the honour to lead since its inception in March 2006. I will present some data and statistics, yet my conclusions will be tentative and will end with a plea for assistance. At the time of writing, DCHP-2 is targeted for completion in 2016 in open access format (Dollinger et al. forthc.). A digital edition of the first edition (Avis, Crate, Drysdale, Leechman, Scargill and Lovell 1967) is now available as DCHP-1 Online (Dollinger, Brinton and Fee 2013).

  • THE SOCIAL EVALUATION OF POST-VOCALIC LIGHT /L/ IN ST. JOHN'S ENGLISH

    • Authors: Rosanna Pierson
      Abstract: This study addresses the question of perception and evaluation of light post-vocalic /l/ in St. John's through a series of perception experiments. These experiments test whether people are able to hear the difference between post-vocalic light and dark /l/, whether they identify this difference as being a characteristic of Newfoundland or St. John's English, and finally, whether they ascribe any kind of stigma or prestige to the difference.

  • THE ELEMENT OF VOCAL DISGUISE IN SOCIOPHONETIC DECEPTION: A REPORT ON
           ONGOING RESEARCH

    • Authors: Brittany Sobol
      Abstract: This paper is a report on my current findings within my M.A. (Linguistics) research, which focuses on vocal disguise within forensic linguistics. Specifically, I aim to answer the question of what individuals are most likely to do with their voice when they do not want to be recognized by a listener. Beyond this, I am interested in whether specific sociolinguistic characteristics – gender and place of origin – have an effect on the disguise choices that individuals make.
