The Legacy of Colonial English
Transported Dialects

Editor
Raymond Hickey, Universit�t Essen, Germany

This book explores the role that British dialects have played in the
genesis and subsequent history of extraterritorial varieties of
English. How did it come about that many New World, postcolonial
versions of English still reflect non-standard British usage from the
distant past? Key issues covered include the relationship between
dialect input and innovation; the extension of dialect influence; the
interaction between British dialects and indigenous languages; the
influence of the social position of immigrant speakers of dialects;
and the relationship of older forms of overseas Englishes to later New
Englishes.
