A Stockport teenager

  • K. R. Lodge (a1)


The present article is a preliminary analysis and detailed phonetic description of a taped conversation (between friends) as an example of the everyday linguistic habits of a teenager from Stockport. When the recording was made, she was sixteen years old (August 1975); she is the granddaughter of the main informant for Lodge (1966). She attended a comprehensive school in Stockport. As an example of a more formal style the informant was asked to read a passage from a newspaper.
