Summary:   Posting a sum and ''thank you'' on my student's behalf:
Lida Cope

I would like to thank Dr. Philippa Cook for the tip in finding the Cockney
dialect in the British Library Collection, at this web link:

Furthermore, I would like extend my thanks to Dr. Jasper Holmes, who sent
me a email link on British dialects:

Jesse Lovegren who recommended me to use AAVE samples from Youtube.

Elen Robert who informed me about the BBC dialect website

and Katrin Thier who advised me to use the British Library Sound Archive's
dialect recordings (sound files), found at

I would like to thank these professionals for their contributions to my
deposit of information relating to Cockney, particularly in building my
store of recordings of Cockney speech. These sources also cover a number of
other English dialects, which will prove helpful in later studies exploring
different varieties of English.
