With dialects constantly changing and mobility increasing in recent years,
it has become difficult to distinguish between such local accents as one
from London or Reading, Bonn or Cologne. This book's authoritative
contributors cover all aspects of recent dialect change, in particular,
dialect convergence and divergence. Each commissioned chapter, based on
original research, provides an overview of a particular issue and presents
case studies to illustrate points raised.
