Abstract: Collection of American English dialect recordings of speech samples, linguistic interviews, oral histories, conversations, and excerpts from public speeches submitted by various participants recorded at various locations and compiled by the Center for Applied Linguistics for a project entitled "A Survey and Collection of American English Dialect Recordings." The collection includes fourteen linear inches of documentation, including an introduction and preface, a list of contents, content summaries, and transcripts for some recordings. Collectors and interviewees vary, representing 43 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and parts of Canada. The recordings submitted for the project were made between 1941 and 1984, a number are undated; the bulk of the recordings are dated from 1968 to 1982. The survey's documentation covers social aspects of English language usage including sex differences; differences between black and white speakers; class distinctions; education; age; literacy; ethnic background for some speakers; and occupational speech, including specialized jargon or vocabulary of various occupations in different regions of the United States. Some of the oral history interviews include storytelling; folklore; family histories; descriptions of holiday celebrations; traditional farming; floods; health care and uses of traditional medicines; descriptions of schools and education; discussions of race relations, politics, and many other topics. The survey was funded by the Center for Applied Linguistics and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
