This text celebrates the rich variety of regional and social dialects
of English in all its forms, ancient and modern.

In this new, revised and extended edition, Trudgill includes phonetic
symbols along with the orthographic representations of speech
sounds. Zummerzet and Scouse, Cockney and Cumberland, Brummie and
Berkshire, Nottingham, Norfolk and Estuary English are all covered.

English dialects are the result of 1500 years of linguistic and
cultural development. Written in non-technical language, this book
outlines their history and their geography. It describes and delights
in the diversity of vocabulary, accent, grammar and literature to be
found among the dialects of England.
