Abstract:

Originally presented at the second in the newly-launched series of
International Conferences on English Historical Dialectology, held at the
University of Bergamo in August 2007, the contributions collected in this
volume discuss significant aspects of socio-geo-historical variation in
language. In addition to British English, the focus is on Dutch, Scots and
varieties of English outside England (in Wales and in the American colonies
of the seventeenth century), in a time span ranging from medieval times to
the nineteenth century. The aim is to highlight the traits that allow
scholars to approach the study of English in a broader European
perspective, identifying the patterns that show convergence or divergence,
not just in terms of shared linguistic features (morphosyntactic, lexical
or pragmatic), but also in terms of methodological approaches. In this
respect, great attention is given to the latest developments in corpus and
computational linguistics, showing the extent to which such new tools as
electronic atlases and tagged corpora may facilitate answers to important
research questions. At the same time, perceptual dialectology is awarded
new interest on account of its significant role in normative and
argumentative language use.
