Scope and Contents note

The English Language Oral History collection contains forty one literary projects developed in 1995 and 1996. Each of these projects includes a transcription of an oral interview, a linguistics analysis of the interview subject and a historical analysis. These projects were part of an English course (ENGL 6160) taught by Dr. Boyd Davis at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

In 1979 Ed Perzel conducted a large number of interviews of people of the Charlotte, North Carolina area. These interviews were recorded on tape in 1995 and 1996. Dr. Boyd Davis, of the UNC Charlotte English Department, assigned her students to use these tapes to make a typed transcription, a phonetic transcription, a linguistic analysis of the accents of the interview subjects, and also an historical analysis of the subject content of the interview. In large part, the purpose of this assignment (and the usefulness of the collection today) concerns regional linguistics of the inhabitants of the central and southern Carolina Piedmont in the twentieth century. There are forty seven project analyses in this collection.
