Subject: Anti-language, Political Correctness, and rap lyrics


I am looking for information about M.A.K Halliday's theories of
anti-language, but despite looking in libraries, bookstores and the
internet, i can't seem to find any helpful information on Halliday. I
really need a theorist to back up the data on my project. My project
argues that RAP is an anti-language (I have research on this as well
as taboo words, race words etc, and political correctness itself) but
i have no theory to back this up. If you could help me find a theory I
would be very grateful.
 
Thankyou.

Hi,

Can anyone point me to where I can find an online or electronic English 
dictionary that has the pronunciation in Scottish Standard English 
(preferably Glaswegian)?

Thanks in advance,
Gina
