Query Details

Author:   Rob Hagiwara
Submitter Email:  click here to access email
Subject Language(s):  English

Query:   Does anyone have any data on the variable use or extent of the pronunications of 'presentation' with [i] (high front tense) vs. [E] (mid front lax) in the first syllable? When did this start to become common? Is it limited to particular areas/social groups? Is there a difference between the two forms (for people who have both)?

I'll be happy to post a summary, if interest warrants.
