Texas & Linguistics – A Match Made In Heaven

I ran across an interesting article today on the intricacies of the Texas accent from a semi-popular linguistics angle. As I am from Texas, and so obviously very passionate about it, and since I enjoy my share of linguistic study, it was an article that couldn’t lose. Probably the most fascinating: There is a married couple who are both linguistics professors at the University of Texas-San Antonio whose major area of field research is the Texas accent. What a sweet job.

Anyway, here is the link: Texas Drawl Article
