For this possibility, you will analyze the language patterns of a speaker (or group of speakers) of a non-standard variety of American English that you find interesting. This variety may be a geographically based variety (e.g.,
Appalachian English, Southern English, Valley Girl English, New Jersey English, Great Lakes English), or it may be a socially based variety, such as a particular way of speaking associated with ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, or even a small community of practice here at CU Boulder. The language variety that you choose to investigate may be either a spoken variety or an online variety (e.g., texting, internet, twitter).
Try to find speakers of your chosen language variety here on campus, but if that fails, you can collect data from media sources. For instance, you can find rich spoken language data on internet sites like YouTube, Reddit or even on reality television shows (e.g. Laguna Beach, Jersey Shore). If you are investigating computer-mediated or digital discourse, you might want to consider using your own emails or text-messages as data. Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, message boards, online gaming sites, and Second Life can also provide interesting language data.
