Swedish - Help
« on: February 28, 2007, 03:01:02 am »
Sirix just reminded me. Are there some native Swedish speakers here who'd be willing to skype with me (or just record their speech) so that I can analyze your swedish-to-english accent phonologically? It would require one, possibly two relatively short conversations, and you'd just have to tell me a bit about you (dialect of swedish, how long english has been studied, and name). I can use probably two or three people.

Sure thing, boss.
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

Presby,
I take it you're a linguistics major, correct?

if so, would you mind if I, at some point, PM you about certain linguisticaly geared questions.  I'm taking linguistics as well, but am in the uber noob stages.  I'm sure any questions I have would be easily answered by toi.

I'm mostly worried about when finals come around in about a months time.
