This paper presents the preliminary results of an acoustic investigation of the vowel sounds of three regional variants of Danish in spontaneous speech. The material for elicitation represents a conceptual fusion of word lists and interviews. Six (of a total eighteen) subjects have been analysed so far. We cannot yet with any certainty establish regional differences between them, but we have clear indications that a general restructuring of the high and mid front unrounded vowels may be under way, at least for some speakers, relative to the older standard norm.
