This volume brings together current research by international scholars on the
varieties of English spoken in Ireland. The papers apply contemporary
theoretical and methodological approaches and frameworks to a range of topics.
A number of papers explore the distribution of linguistic features in Irish
English, including the evolution of linguistic structures in Irish English and
linguistic change in progress, employing broadly quantitative sociolinguistic
approaches. Pragmatic features of Irish English are explored through corpus
linguistics-based analysis. The construction of linguistic corpora using
written and recorded material form the focus of other papers, extending and
analyzing the growing range of corpus material available to researchers of
varieties of English, including diaspora varieties. Issues of language and
identity in contemporary Ireland are explored in several contributions using
both qualitative and quantitative methods. The volume will be of interest to
linguists generally, and to scholars with an interest in varieties of English.

Linguistic Field(s): Dialectology

Subject Language(s): Irish (gle)

Written In: English (eng)
