Abstract:

The dialect of North-East Scotland, one of the most distinctive and
best preserved in the country, survives as both a proudly maintained
mark of local identity and the vehicle for a remarkable regional
literature. The present study, after placing the dialect in its
historical, geographical and social context, discusses in some detail
a selection of previous accounts of its distinctive characteristics of
phonology and grammar, showing that its shibboleths have been well
recognised, and have remained consistent, over a long period. Passages
of recorded speech are then examined, with extensive use of phonetic
transcription. Finally, a representative selection of written texts,
dating from the eighteenth century to the present and illustrating a
wide variety of styles and genres, are presented with detailed
annotations. A full glossary is also included. This study clearly
demonstrates both the individuality of the dialect and the richness of
the local culture of which it is an integral part.
