Title: Analysing 21st Century British English
Subtitle: Conceptual and Methodological Aspects of the 'Voices' Project
Publisher: Routledge (Taylor and Francis)
The Voices project of the British Broadcasting Corporation, a recent high-profile media investigation, gathered contemporary English dialect samples from all over the UK and invited contributions from the public to a dedicated website. This book explores both issues of ideology and representation behind the media project and uses to which the emerging data can be put in the study of language variation and change.
