I've bought one of those ten-minute sampling cassettes and I'm ready
to record. I'll wait another twenty hours though, to let Conlang members
comment on my plans.
I'd like to put the results on my web page, as a service to the conlang
and amateur linguistic communities. It would be nice to add information
about how social/regional/personal dialects vary across Australia
(shouldn't be hard to research in this age of email), and perhaps also
some information about what is most remarkable in my dialect from an
international perspective (conlang the best resource on this). In other
words I'd like to create a one-page online resource about Australian
dialects that uses my own idiolect as the primary example. Since the few
resources that exist are biased toward the Eastern states I think this
would be useful.
My current plan is to record three repetitions of each of the following
Consider the sound in sound or the vowel in vowel.
