dc.description.abstract This research has been designed to investigate regional differences in a variety of South African English known as General South African English, between the White communities of Durban and Cape Town respectively. The research is socio-phonetic in its focus and therefore three variables, the PRICE, NURSE and KIT vowels of Wells’ (1982) lexical sets, were selected for acoustic analysis, a selection which was guided partly by the researcher’s own intuitions and partly by observed correlations in the impressionistic literature between certain realisations of these vowels and the Cape and Kwa-Zulu Natal as regions. en_ZA
