Nonstandard varieties of languages have recently become an object of new
interest in scholarly research. This is very much due to the advances in
the methods used in data collection and analysis, as well as the emergence
of new language-theoretical frameworks. The articles in this volume stem
from the 11th International Conference on Methods in Dialectology (Methods
XI, August 2002, Joensuu). The theme for this conference was "Dialects
across borders". The selection of contributions included in this volume
demonstrates how various kinds of borders exert major influence on
linguistic behaviour all over the world. The articles have been grouped
according to whether they deal primarily with the linguistic outcomes of
political and historical borders between states (Part I); various kinds of
social and regional boundaries, including borders in a metaphorical sense,
i.e. social barriers and mental or cognitive boundaries (Part II); and
finally, boundaries between languages (Part III).

"When languages are carried across borders of various kinds - social,
regional, national and multinational - they undergo surprising
accommodations. Dialects Across Borders looks at some of the ways they
adapt through case studies from Iceland, Finland, the Netherlands, Ireland,
the British Isles, the European Common Market, and North America. Together,
these insightful studies bear witness to the resilience and resourcefulness
of our languages, and to the people who use them."
