Abstract:

Are the dialects of England disappearing in the wake of globalisation and
'Estuary English', or are geographical differences as strong as ever? Joan
Beal looks at recent research into regional variation in England, discusses
the evidence for 'dialect levelling' and argues that, despite this,
features of dialect are still clear markers of regional and local identity.

Chapters outlining the main regional differences in accent, dialect grammar
and dialect vocabulary are followed by discussions of research into
geographical diffusion, levelling, issues of identity and stereotypes. Each
chapter is accompanied by either an exercise based on data provided, a
data-gathering exercise using methodological tools provided, or an extract
from a media article provided to provoke discussion. The book also includes
a guide to resources available for the study of regional dialects in England.

Features:
* An up-to-date account of research into regional variation in England
* A practical, 'hands on' approach, providing the reader with the methods
and resources to carry out research projects
* Includes exercises for use in class.

Joan Beal is Professor of English Language and Director of the National
Centre for English Cultural Tradition at the University of Sheffield. She
is co-editor of EUP's Dialects of English series. Her previous books are
English Pronunciation in the Eighteenth Century, English in
Modern Times
and Language and Region.
