We learned yesterday in our Phonology class why Britney Spears pronounce the letter “L” in a supralabial way. She was raised in Kentwood, Louisiana, a state located in the southern region of the United States, a region that was colonized by the French Empire. The French usually pronounce the letter “L” by touching the upper lip with the tongue, and this became part of the Southern way of speaking. Britney uses this peculiar detail as a particular signature.
