Subject:  emerging pronunciation of 'presentation'

Does anyone have any data on the variable use or extent of the
pronunications of 'presentation' with [i] (high front tense) vs. [E]
(mid front lax) in the first syllable?  When did this start to become
common?  Is it limited to particular areas/social groups?  Is there a
difference between the two forms (for people who have both)?

I'll be happy to post a summary, if interest warrants.

 Dear Sirs,


I am an MA student of ELT in TMU university, Tehran Iran.I am now
working on my thesis titled " The Relationship between Assertiveness
and EFL Students' Ability in Oral Argumentation".But the problem is
that I can not find any related literature concerning assertiveness
and foreign language learning in general and in particular.

I would be indebtful to you if you would provide me with some
literature on this subject.(any material concerning the personality
trait"assertiveness" and oral argumentation or oral proficiency in
EFL/ESL and their evaluation, etc are welcome).

Sincerely yours

A.O. Oskouei
