ASC Launches New Pittsburgh Speech & Society Project Website

The revamped Pittsburgh Speech & Society Project Website focuses on disseminating research and educational materials relevant to the Pittsburgh dialect and now includes conversational interviews that capture examples of such dialect. We are grateful to Dr. Barbara Johnstone, Professor of Linguistics and Rhetoric at Carnegie Mellon University, who conducted the project (along with Dr. Scott F. Kiesling, Associate Professor of Linguistics at Pitt) and donated the interviews to the Archives Service Center and subsequently partnered with us to create the new site.
