To All Linguist List Subscribers


I am presently doing a literature search for one particular 
article which exists somewhere, but unfortunately I know 
not where!

It involves a matched guise test in which the effects of 
standard v. non-standard dialects on the management 
decisions of doctors was assessed, i.e. Surgery was 
more likely to be recommended for the clients with non-
standard dialects. 

We are planning to carry out a similar study involving 
Belfast English and counsellors/general practitioners 
and would therefore be very grateful if anyone 
recognises the above research (or indeed can 
recommend anything similar).


With Many Thanks


Karen

Subject: reduplication, rhyme, and ablaut in English


My research work is on reduplication, rhyme & ablaut
combinations in American English.
It's very difficult for me to find the information on
this topic here in the place I live. If you have
anything for me please reply to
shamdanashevyahoo.com

Thank you very much in advance.
One more request.
If you have any examples of reduplication, rhyme or
ablaut combinations in American English would you
send them to me too.

Gratefully,

shamil danashe, Adyge University, Russia
