Abstract:

This volume gives a detailed overview of the varieties of English spoken on
the British Isles, including lesser-known varieties such as those spoken in
Orkney and Shetland and the Channel Islands.

The chapters, written by widely acclaimed specialists, provide concise and
comprehensive information on the phonological, morphological and syntactic
characteristics of each variety discussed.

The articles are followed by exercises and study questions. The exercises
are geared towards students and can be used for classroom assignments as
well as for self study in preparation for exams. Instructors can use the
exercises, sound samples and interactive maps to enhance their classroom
presentations and to highlight important language features.

The accompanying CD-ROM contains interactive maps and speech samples that
supplement the printed articles and offer material and data for further
research.

The rich detail found in the chapters as well as the valuable tools on the
CD-Rom make this survey of English Varieties a mainstay for researchers and
teachers.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $60,000. This money will go to help keep

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.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
