Abstract:

'English Accents and Dialects' is a unique introductory survey of the main
regional and social varieties of English spoken in the British Isles. The
authors discuss accent and dialect in the broader framework of language
variation, including phonetic, phonological, grammatical, lexical,
historical and stylistic differences. This is followed by a survey of the
speech of different areas of the British Isles. The CD, which accompanies
