Labov, Yaeger, and Steiner (1972) added to the LWAA

Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to present for your reading pleasure, the long out of print volumes 1 and 2 of LYS (1972). The version included here (via the Less Widely Available Archive [LWAA]) is a cover to cover scan of the spiral bound manuscript edition circulated to libraries in 1972. The PDF of Vol 2 has been assembled in such a way that readability of the plots and graphs included in that volume should be enhanced on electronic devices such as Iphones, Ipads, and other electronic readers. It addition, they should also display in a much more user friendly manner on a standard computer display, as well, than they would if just a straight page by page scan were done.

Here are upfront quick links to both volumes, below…
