Dear Linguists,

On January 24 I posted a query (LINGUIST Vol-11-153) asking for
references on youth language. My sincere thanks go to the
following six people who replied (in alphabetical order):

:: Amalia Arvaniti, Univ. of Cyprus, e-mail: <amalia@ucy.ac.cy>
:: Desiree Baron, Univ. of Michigan, e-mail:
<desireebaron@hotmail.com>
:: Zsuzsanna Fagyal-Le Mentec, Univ. of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign, e-mail: <zsfagyal@uiuc.edu>

<p.e.kerswill@reading.ac.uk>
:: Carl Mills, email: <MILLSCR@UCMAIL.UC.EDU>
:: Shinsuke Watanabe, Western Michigan Univ., e-mail:
<watanabes@wmich.edu>

The information I received is listed below according to language,
in the following order: AAV English, UK English, Austrian German,
French, Greek, and Japanese. I also give a couple of on-line
references at the end of the summary.

AUSTRIAN GERMAN

Desiree Baron (Michigan) referred to her recently completed Ph.D.
thesis:

"Comparative strategies for managing linguistic repertoires:
Examining situational code choice among adolescent speakers in a
micro-community in Austria".

It can be obtained through Bell&Howell/UMI. A copy is available at
the Library of the University of Michigan.

Carl Mills suggested Willam Labov's (1972) Language in the Inner
City, as well as:

Baugh, John (1983)
Black street speech: its history, structure, and survival.
Austin: University of Texas Press.

UK ENGLISH
- ---------
Paul Kerswill (Reading) sent me a list of papers from recent
research projects (i.e. the Milton Keynes, Reading, and Hull
projects) which are investigating children's and/or teenage
speech. Here are three of these references which should be easy to
find:

Keynes.

Zsuzsanna Fagyal-Le Mentec (Urbana-Champaign) sent me two
references investigating on-going language change in the Parisian
French of young people:

Fagyal, Zs. (1998a).
Le retour du e final en fran?ais parisien: changement phon?tique
conditionn? par la prosodie. [The return of word-final e in
Parisian French: phonetic change conditionned by the prosody].

Sciences, San Francisco, pp. 309-312.


- ----
GREEK
- ----

Amalia Arvaniti (Cyprus) referred to a paper by Brian Joseph and
herself on prenasalization in Greek. As she notes, "one of the
most striking findings was the great gap between the percentage of
prenasalized tokens
among young and older speakers in all styles".

Arvaniti, A. & B. D. Joseph (1999)
Variation in voiced stop prenasalisation in Greek.
In: OSU Working Papers in Linguistics 52: 203-232]

Shinsuke Watanabe (Michigan) referred to his M.A. thesis on word
formation phenomena (such as truncation and shortening) in the
language of Japanese teenagers, as well as to one Japanese book on
the subject:
