    Vowel shortening and T-voicing in Canadian English
    (University of Calgary, 1975-01) Campbell, A. Luella
    This paper will discuss three regional variations in Canadian dialects. Two of these regions have two rules, which do not seem to be present in the third dialect, Dialect C. These two rules differ in their ordering in the other two dialects, Dialects A and B. All three dialects have the general Canadian Raising Rule. The two rules, which are the subject for this paper, are the Vowel Shortening Rule and the T-Voicing Rule.

    A comparison of M. Bloomfield's "Western (Saskatchewan)" dialect and a dialect from the Regina area
    (University of Calgary, 1975-01) Gullon, P
    Bloomfield, in Southerland: (1973:31-32) presents a phonetic transcription for several dozen words in the "Western (Saskatchewan)" dialect of English. An analysis of this regional dialect shows a number of rather faulty generalizations in Bloomfield's treatment when compared with the dialects of five residents of the Regina area.

    Rule ordering in Canadian English
    (University of Calgary, 1975-01) Jones, Brenda
    Over ten years ago, "Morris Halle cited Martin Joos' data to demonstrate that some Canadian dialect differences can be characterized in terms of differently ordered rules." Two of these differently ordered rules are T-Voicing and Vowel Shortening, called for short Voicing and Shortening, respectively.
