Abstract:

This volume offers qualitative as well as corpus-based quantitative studies
on grammatical variation in the British Isles written from a typological
perspective. All studies make use of the Freiburg English Dialect Corpus
(FRED), a computerized corpus for predominantly British English dialects.
Systematic comparative analyses of the following three domains of grammar
form the backbone of the volume: relativization strategies in Scottish
English, Northern Irish English, and in four major dialect areas in England
(Hermann), the so-called Northern Subject Rule, a special agreement
phenomenon known from Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland
(Pietsch), and pronominal gender, with a special focus on the typologically
rather unique semantic gender system in the dialects of Southwest England
(Wagner).

Key Features:
- It is the first book of its kind. It is rare already in its focus on the
morphology and syntax of dialects. It is unique in its general orientation
and data base.
- The volume is bound to have a major impact on English dialectology and
the study of the grammar of English.
