    in contemporary oral French and English languages the possibilities of levelling and counter levelling are currently a major topic of research for LVTI Both PFC and PAC protocols are being applied to cohorts of speakers 60 informants as an average survey for each location each time with specific sociolinguistic psycholinguistic sociological and pedagogical concerns with specific extensions to both corpora primary and secondary schools As far as possible corpora will include ecological audiovisual recordings in the sociolinguistic sense but one has to remain careful about the comparability of the data Urban life and work as major topics in this programme are meant to bridge the gap between cognitive psychology sociology and language studies in a contemporary urban context The five original PAC PFC goals remain as key areas of research 1 to give a better picture of spoken English in its unity and diversity geographical social and stylistic 2 to test phonological and phonetic models from a synchronic diachronic and variationist point of view 3 to favour communication between phonological studies and speech specialists 4 to provide data and analyses which will help improve the teaching of linguistics and French and English as foreign languages 5 to allow for the preservation of spoken varieties of French and English what the French call conservation du patrimoine e g for Basque But the LVTI protocol is enlarged to fit specific issues of interest as summarized below 1 Collaboration with sociologists specializing in urban centres and work issues We will take advantage of the formal interviews to put a small number of questions to informants relating to urban life work and language It is hoped that our interviews will be complemented by other interviews and possibly questionnaires devised by sociologists which will constitute a large database shared by researchers from different disciplines 2 Collaboration with interactionists specialized in the study of language interaction and in filming informants One of our objectives is to video a number of informants from the most formal situation in the PAC and PFC protocols the reading aloud of lists of words to more natural or ecological situations home interactions work environment etc 3 Collaboration with sociolinguists Our informants will be selected with as much social diversity as possible and if achievable from clearly differentiated districts within Greater Manchester Manchester and Salford In addition to the PAC protocol it is intended that recordings will be made of informants for whom the reading aloud task is difficult or arguably inappropriate Other methods of observation and linguistic study of urban centres are also being explored e g recordings in public places such as railway stations airports shops etc 4 Collaboration with psycholinguists working in language development We intend to apply the protocol to children in primary and secondary schools and complement these with other recordings or psycholinguistic tasks 5 Collaboration with specialists in teaching English or French as a native or foreign language Teachers of English or French have great experience in observing and studying different language situations and recordings made
