Audio Features

Since 2012, occasional Audio Features in American Speech have given readers the opportunity to listen directly to linguists and in some case to the speakers they study. Features include interviews with notable linguists, documentary-style treatments of dialectal or sociolinguistic variation, compilations of field recordings, and so on. Those published so far are listed below, starting with the most recent. The audio files (and in most cases accompanying transcripts) are available under the Supplements tab of the article’s page on
