Message 1: query about _daughters of the dust_

Date: Sun, 05 Apr 92 15:59:10 -0query about _daughters of the dust_
From: "Ellen F. Prince" <ellencentral.cis.upenn.edu>
Subject: query about _daughters of the dust_

does anyone know anything about the movie _daughters of the dust_? in
particular, i'm wondering (a)how authentic to the area (sea islands,
off the coast of south carolina, i think) was the speech of the actors,
and (b)what, if anything, was gullah in the movie. (there was one
little speech with subtitles, but it was easily understandable without
subtitles. could that have been gullah?) also, does anyone know anything
about pronominal case-marking in whatever dialect it was?

thanks.

	Dear Linguist,
	 Can you help me find an E-mail address in Spain, Puerto
	Rico, or some other Spanish speaking country for some of
	my Spainsh speaking students to send E-mail? By the way I
	also have some black students. Do you also have some
	African addresses? Those of course would have to be English?
	 Thank you most sincerely for any and all help!
	 J.Martin

I recently received a note from a friend in computer science
who sent me a paragraph I had written to him translated into
"Jive" (really, Pseudo-jive). It was translated by a program,
and there was a matching program on "Valspeak," which, though
not as thorough or interesting, did more or less the same
thing. Technically, they are rather elegant examples of
textual analysis programming, though their purpose is rather
trivial. (I'll be glad to send examples to anyone interested.)

Does anyone out there know of studies of perceived linguistic
patterns of various social groups as exoteric folklore? I'm
referring not to the speech patterns as they are actually
practiced, such as the sociolinguistic studies of Labov, Hymes
and others, but of the codified patterns adopted by those
outside a group as a way of imitating or parodying the
perceived speech patterns of that group (either as honorific
emulation or ethnic slur)?

Can someone QUICKLY tell me the page numbers for the attached
reference? (I would not do this normally, but the book is
unavailable to me for a few weeks, and the reference is holding
up an article otherwise ready for the printer):
