FAITHFULNESS TO THE DIALECT IN ENGLISH AND SLOVENE SONGS
Sabina Jevšenak, 2011, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: When we speak we are able to control our language. We can speak in our dialect, with our accent, or we speak correctly as the standards of a language require. The purpose of this paper was to research how is with this phenomenon in music. Do different singers use the same language when singing and when speaking? I used three different English dialects (Cockney, Irish and Scottish dialect) and two random representatives of each dialect for my research. I transcribed one song and one interview of each representative and parallel to that transcribed the same text in RP. I concentrated on the differences and compared the results. Moreover, for comparison between English and Slovene language I used my diploma seminar work, which deals with dialects in Slovene songs.
