Abstract:

'The book creates a wonderful balance between the theory and the Irish
English data. It is rich with illustrations of different features with
examples from the author's own research and observations over the years, in
particular her classroom experiences. This is an excellent book, well
written in an engaging style. It will be attractive to the audience of
people interested in the study of Irish English. It will also prove
interesting and engaging to the general reader interested in Irish English
or Hiberno-English.'
Brian Nolan, Head of the Department of Informatics at the Institute of
Technology Blanchardstown in Dublin, Ireland

This book is a practical introduction to the English spoken in Ireland, its
most characteristic features, and its historical development. As well as
looking at the specific examples where substratum from the Irish Language
can be observed, the book analyses other features unique to Irish English,
from different perspectives (taking into account, for example, the
pragmatic implications of certain syntactic structures in current spoken
Irish English). It offers the reader a comprehensive coverage of the
history and most salient features of this variety of English, while
discussing key concepts such as bilingualism and language shift.

The material is presented in a simple and accessible manner. It encourages
the reader to discuss and think critically about some of the topics and to
use the last section of each chapter as a basis for further investigation.
An Introduction to Irish English contains exercises and practical
activities with each chapter, as well as suggestions for further reading.
It deals with both real data and fictional representations of this variety
and it includes excerpts from Literature, media and film scripts, as well
as other contexts, including everyday conversation, newspapers, e-mail,
blogs, etc.
