Query Subject:   Re: Variation of theta to [f] in varieties of English

Submitter Email:  click here to access email

Query:   I am looking for both linguistic and social information concerning
theta to [f] variation in varieties of English (e.g. "birthday" to
"bir[f]day" ). I know that in Northern varieties of US English, it can
be highly stigmatized; however, in the Southern US, it for the mos
part passes unnoticed. I was wondering what the social constraints or
associations might be in other varieties of English. Email me
directly, and I will post a summary. Thanks, Kirk [krk]

Thanks for your help,
