Abstract:

This book provides the first systematic description of the linguistic
accommodation of Moravian migrants in Bohemia. By analyzing the linguistic
behaviour of 39 university students from different parts of Moravia living at a
hall of residence in Prague, the author investigates part of an unsubstantiated
and ideologically motivated dialect contact hypothesis according to which in
informal, everyday communication Moravians in Bohemia accommodate not in the
direction of the standard dialect but to Common Czech, a non-standard
interdialect that is spoken throughout Bohemia. The study combines a
quantitative analysis of six linguistic variables with an ethnographic study of
informants linguistic and social behaviour. A primary objective of the
study is to identify the impact of various social criteria on informants
acquisition of Common Czech forms.

Contents: Dialect contact - Accommodation theory - Standard
Czech - Common Czech - Moravian dialects and interdialects -
The variationist paradigm - Linguistic variables - Independent
variables - Social network analysis - Participant observation
- Statistical analysis

The Author: James Wilson is Teaching Fellow in Russian at the University of
Leeds and an Honorary Research Fellow of the University of Sheffield. His
research interests include language variation in Czech, dialect contact and
second-dialect acquisition.
