In this study, I will investigate the features of the Asian American English ethnolinguistic repertoire as per Newman & Wu (2011)’s conclusion. I will collect interview data from a number of Asian American speakers as well as white American speakers and analyze them for the features described in Newman & Wu (2011), Hanna (1997), Wong (2000), and Ito (2010). In collecting data from both Asian American and white American speakers, I plan on illuminating the differences between the two and asking whether Asian Americans simply “sound white”, or whether there are subtle sociophonetic cues that can differentiate the two.
