Abstract:

Applying insights from variationist linguistics to historical change
mechanisms that have affected the consonantal system of English, Daniel
Schreier reports findings from a historical corpus-based study on the
reduction of particular consonant clusters and compares them with similar
processes in synchronic varieties, thus defining consonantal change as a
phenomenon involving psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, phonological
theory and contact linguistics. Moreover, he weighs the impact of external
and internal effects on causation, examining data from a total of 15
varieties with different time depths and social histories.
