Abstract:

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

English has been spoken in Ireland for over 800 years, making Irish English
the oldest variety of the language outside Britain. This book traces the
development of English in Ireland, both north and south, from the late Middle
Ages to the present day. Drawing on authentic data ranging from medieval
literature to authentic contemporary examples, it reveals how Irish English
arose, how it has developed, and how it continues to change. A variety of
central issues are considered in detail, such as the nature of language
contact and the shift from Irish to English, the sociolinguistically motivated
changes in present-day Dublin English, the special features of Ulster Scots,
and the transportation of Irish English to overseas locations as diverse as
Canada, the United States, and Australia. Presenting a comprehensive
survey of Irish English at all levels of linguistics, this book will be invaluable
to historical linguists, sociolinguists, syntacticians and phonologists alike.

Raymond Hickey's Irish English is a work of impressive scholarship, very
well documented and thoroughly researched. Together with the same author's
invaluable Source Book for Irish English (Hickey, 2
