Title: Language Contacts Meet English Dialects
Subtitle: Studies in Honour of Markku Filppula
Edited By: Esa Penttilä
Heli Paulasto
Description:

This book presents a collection of fresh research on language contacts and
dialects, and the interface between the two. The volume celebrates the work
of Professor Markku Filppula, an eminent scholar in the fields of Irish
English, Celtic contacts in the history of English, and language contacts
and vernacular universals in nonstandard Englishes. The articles in this
volume explore theories and methods employed in the study of language
contacts and variation, Celtic substrata in Irish and British English, and
dialect in the British Isles. The writers’ perspectives range from
cognitive processing to sociolinguistics, and from theoretical and
comparative discussions to new empirical, corpus-based studies.
