Abstract

This paper discusses an acoustic study of the GOOSE lexical set for 42 speakers of Carlisle English. The results support the view that GOOSE fronting is taking place in this variety. The results also confirm that different preceding allophonic environments influence the degree of fronting. Additionally, the status of the lexical sets FOOT and GOAT in relation to GOOSE is also discussed. However, fronting is not attested for these lexical sets.
