of English world-wide. This book presents an up-to-date account of all
the major aspects of New Zealand English by leading scholars as well
as younger specialists in each of the major fields of enquiry. The
book is authoritative in its range and represents not only a synopsis
of past research, but also new research in many areas of study and is
of interest not just to specialists in regional varieties of English
but many of the chapters detail new approaches to the study of dialect
phenomena. The work contains an introduction describing the external
history of New Zealand English and the development of the study of New
Zealand English. It comes with a full bibliography of work on New
Zealand English and is fully indexed. A significant landmark in the
study of English varieties this work will prove indispensable for
anyone who is a student of English and New Zealand English.
