Academic Paper


Title: A question of identity: A response to Trudgill
Author: Laurie Bauer
Institution: Victoria University of Wellington
Linguistic Field: Sociolinguistics
Abstract: I shall begin this brief contribution with a small amount of self-justification, since I appear to have become picked out as one of the “bad guys” in Trudgill's thesis. I shall then go on to agree with some of Trudgill's points, but not with all. In particular, I shall conduct a small thought experiment on the link between accommodation and the development of new dialects.
