Comment: includes CD-ROM
The intention of the current book is to provide a flexible and
comprehensive bibliographical tool to those scholars working or
interested in Irish English. A whole range of references
(approx. 2,500) relating to Irish English in all its aspects are
gathered together here and in the majority of cases annotations are
supplied. The book has a detailed introduction dealing the history of
Irish English, the documentation available and contains an overview of
the themes in Irish English which have occupied linguists working in
the field. Various appendixes offer information on the history of
Irish English studies and biographical notes on scholars from this
area. All the bibliographical material is contained on the
accompanying CD-ROM along with appropriate software (Windows, PC) for
processing the databases and texts. The databases are fully
searchable, information can be exported at will and customised
extracts can be created by users from within an intuitive software
