Abstract:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

In the last five hundred years or so, the English language has undergone
remarkable geographical expansion, bringing it into contact with other
languages in new locations. It also caused different regional dialects of
the language to come into contact with each other in colonial situations.
This book is made up of a number of fascinating tales of
historical-sociolinguistic detection. These are stories of origins - of a
particular variety of English or linguistic feature - which together tell a
compelling general story. In each case, Trudgill presents an intriguing
puzzle, locates and examines the evidence, detects clues that unravel the
mystery, and finally proposes a solution. The solutions are all original,
often surprising, sometimes highly controversial. Providing a unique
insight into how language contact shapes varieties of English, this
entertaining yet rigorous account will be welcomed by students and
researchers in linguistics,
sociolinguistics and historical linguistics.

Prologue: colonisation and contact;

1. What really happened to Old English?;
2. East Anglian English and the Spanish Inquisition;
3. On Anguilla and The Pickwick Papers;
4. The last Yankee in the Pacific;
5. An American lack of dynamism;
6. Colonial lag?;
7. 'The new non-rhotic style';
8. What became of all the Scots?;

Epilogue: the critical threshold and interactional synchrony.
