Phonology of a southern Swedish idiolect

Svantesson, Jan-Olof LU (2001) In Working Papers, Lund University, Dept. of Linguistics 49.
Abstract
In this egocentric article I describe briefly the segmental phonology of my own southern Swedish idiolect. I grew up in Getinge in central Halland, about 20 km north of Halmstad, speaking a regional variant of southern Standard Swedish. Although my dialect has certainly changed somewhat after I moved to Lund in 1964 at the age of 20, I believe that I still retain the basic pronunciation of vowels and consonants from my original dialect. There is one older description of the Getinge dialect by Colliander 1868. At that time, the dialect differed much more from Standard Swedish, and the main remaining segmental differences are the effects of r on surrounding segments, which are not treated by Colliander.
