Book Information

   

Title: Irish English, volume 1 - Northern Ireland
Written By: Karen P Corrigan
URL: http://www.euppublishing.com/book/978-0-7486-3429-3
Series Title: Dialects of English
Description:

This book focuses on the sociolinguistic consequences of historical contact
between indigenous Irish peoples and newer English and Scottish settlers in
what is now the territory of Northern Ireland (NI). The contact varieties
that resulted represent the oldest L2 'Englishes' globally. Moreover, the
degree of admixture from English, Irish and Scots in the contemporary
dialects of NI reflects various external forces. Naturally, these varieties
share certain structural features with sister Celtic Englishes and indeed
with other vernacular Englishes globally. However, there are other
linguistic traits that seem to be unique and therefore essentially local.

Irish English, Volume 1 - Northern Ireland aims to provide insights into
the evolution of language in 21st century NI and to promote an
understanding of linguistic diversity in this region in the context of
World Englishes by including:

*An overview of cultural, demographic and geographic aspects of NI's
languages/dialects
*An extensive, though accessible, description of their structures
*A history of language in NI, pinpointing regional/social differences as
well as current changes
*An annotated bibliography of relevant literature and a general
bibliography to aid further research
*Speech and text samples from the 19th-21st centuries.
