conduct a linguistic analysis of a speech sample of someone who speaks a dialect different from their own. This analysis will include phonetic transcription, an analysis of syntax, semantics, and an application of various linguistics terms and concepts. This will also include a section where students will compare and contrast their own dialect with the one they analyzed. Students will be encouraged to find someone who speaks a different dialect and record their own audio sample. However, the instructor will have audio files available for students to utilize. This will be three to four pages including transcription.
Will provide a template for analysis with format

Dialect Analysis Paper
Linguistics for Elementary Teachers
Provide a one to two paragraph introduction and summary of your paper. Identify what dialect you are analyzing, who/where the audio sample is from, and the major findings of your analysis. Summarize the process that you used to conduct the analysis. Be sure to specifically, and correctly, identify the linguistic elements/terms your analysis will focus on.
Phonology of the ___________ Dialect
In this section, you will provide several items of analysis. First, summarize the major phonological findings of your analysis. What phonemes make unique sounds? What patterns did you notice? What are other unique features of the dialect and the accent?
Next, provide a phonetic transcription of at least two sentences (a minimum of 12 words total). You can also incorporate phonetic transcriptions into the paragraphing of your analysis to illustrate prevalent sound features of the dialect.
Syntax of the ______ Dialect
In this section, you will analyze the syntax of the dialect. You should comment on the construction of sentences and phrases/clauses. You might also note verb usage, preposition usage, and sentence patterns. Morpheme analysis could fit in this section as well. Quote directly from the speech sample to illustrate the ideas in your analysis.
Semantic Analysis of the __________ Dialect
In this section, provide ideas and insights into the unique ways in which meaning is relayed. You can comment on items such as slang, figures of speech, idioms, or other interesting ways in which the dialect relays meaning.
Comparison of _____ Dialect and ______ Dialect
In this section, write a short comparison and contrast between your own speech and the dialect which you analyzed. You can focus on any of the following elements in this section: phonology, morphology, syntax, and/or semantics. One to two complete paragraphs.
