Abstract:

This book is a comprehensive but accessible description of English as it is
spoken in New Zealand. New Zealand English is one of the youngest native
speaker varieties of English, and is the only variety of English where
there is recorded evidence of its entire history. It shares some features
with other Southern Hemisphere varieties of English such as Australian
English and South African English, but is also clearly distinct from these.
For the past two decades extensive research has focused on the evolution
and ongoing development of the variety. New Zealand English presents the
results of this research in an accessible way.

Key Features
-A succinct but comprehensive account of the phonetic, phonological,
morphosyntactic, lexical and discourse features which are characteristic of
the dialect.
-A discussion of the historical development of New Zealand English.
-A description of the current social and regional variation within the variety.
-An indication of the areas where change is currently occurring.
-Sample texts and an annotated bibliography of relevant literature.
There are also several associated audio files, which provide examples of
many of the phenomena discussed: http://www.lel.ed.ac.uk/dialects/
