SCoSE Part 7: London Teenage Talk

Part 7: London Teenage Talk

All the stories included here are transcribed by Nadine Luck from hours of audio-taped talk recorded by her and Christine Roth at Dartford Grammar School for Girls and Gravesend Grammar School for Boys in England in 2008. All the subjects were students at those schools and native speakers of English between the ages of fifteen and eighteen. The recordings were made during class time. Pairs of students went to a separate room where they were asked to converse normally and left alone. Permission to tape the interactions was secured beforehand. Ms. Luck has subsequently assigned fictional names to all participants to preserve anonymity for everyone involved.
