Abstract:

This volume presents 16 original studies of variation in languages
representing the three main European language families, as well as in
varieties of Greek and Hungarian. The studies concern variation in or
across dialects or dialect groups, in standard varieties or in emerging
regional varieties of the standard. Several studies investigate a specific
linguistic element or structure, while others focus on areas of tension
between variation and prescriptive standard norms, on regional standard
varieties and regiolects, on problems of linguistic classification (from
folk linguistic or dialect geographical perspectives) and the
classification of speakers. Language acquisition plays a main role in three
studies.

The studies in this volume represent a range of methods, including
ethnographic and 'interpretative' approaches, conversation analysis,
analyses of the internal and geographical distribution of dialect features,
the classification and quantitative analyses of socio-demographic speaker
background data, quantitative analyses of both diachronic and synchronic
language data, phonetic measurements, as well as (quasi-)experimental
perception studies.

The volume thus offers a microcosmic reflection of the macrocosmos of
world-wide research on variability in (originally) European languages at
the beginning of the 21th century and the linguistic expression of cultural
diversity.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.
