Title: Scottish Newspapers, Language and Identity
Written By: Fiona Douglas
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/9780748624379
Description:

The first decade of the new Scottish Parliament has seen the emergence of a
new-found national confidence. 'Scottishness' is clearly alive and
flourishing. This book offers new and detailed insights into Scottish
language and its usage by the Scottish press. To what extent does the use
of identifiably Scottish lexical features help them to maintain their
distinctive Scottish identity and appeal to their readership? Which
Scottish words and phrases do the papers use and where, is it a symbolic
gesture, do they all behave in the same way, and has this changed since
devolution?

Combining analysis of broad trends with detailed discussion of individual
Scottish words and phrases, its timely publication coincides with a period
when interest in things Scottish is at an all time high.

This book is available in north America from Columbia University Press.
