Query Subject:   G-Dropping in Informal English Speech

Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   I am developing a research project that addresses the frequency with
which the final engma is dropped (g-dropping) or retained in informal
speech situations. (Progressive constructions, ''nothing,'' etc.).

I am having some difficulty finding existing research on this topic. In
conducting my research, I would like to consider the models that
speakers have for their construction of this sound sound, specifically
models given by authorities in educational settings.

I am also interested in research that explores the difference (if any)
between men's and women's pronunciation of the sound.

Thank you very much.
