This study examines the effect of race-consciousness upon the
pronunciation of American English and upon the ideology of
standardization in the twentieth century. It shows how the discourses
of prescriptivist pronunciation, the xenophobic reaction against
immigration to the eastern metropolises - especially New York - and
the closing of the western frontier together constructed an image of
the American West and Midwest as the locus of proper speech and
ethnicity. This study is of interest to scholars and students in
linguistics, American studies, cultural studies, Jewish studies, and
studies in race, class, and gender.

"... this is an excellent book, well researched and written and full
of substance. It will be an excellent resource for students interested
in language ideology generally, and in the history and development of
American ideology in particular." (Lesley Milroy, University of
Michigan)
