Relativisation on the North Sea Litoral
Patricia Poussa (ed.)
University of Ume�

This volume brings together new papers on relative clause formation by
leading scholars from all branches of North Sea Germanic. The
historical development of the relative system in written texts is
covered in the papers by Platzack on the Scandinavian languages,
Hoekstra on Frisian, Van der Wal on Dutch, R�sler on Middle Low German
(Hansa texts) and Nevalainen & Raumolin-Brunberg on Early Modern
English (Corpus of Early English Correspondence). Cross-language
comparisons can be made in the emergence of wh- relative pronouns in
all these written languages. Thus this collection fills a long-felt
want, enabling one to place the English historical developments within
their North Sea Germanic context.

Several ground-breaking papers are based on tape-recorded surveys, some
geolinguistic, some sociolinguistic in approach. Peitsara's analysis of
1970's Suffolk materials throws new light on the traditional rural
dialect of southern East Anglia (poorly covered by the Survey of English
Dialects), while for five other English dialect areas Tagliamonte, using
Labovian methodology, reports on the present tendency for the relative
marker that to be generalised as a supraregional relative marker. 
Methodological problems with Germanic that (old, new, or both?) and with
nonstandard English what are discussed, with benefit of hindsight, in
the Editor's Introduction.
