Title: Contact is not enough: A response to Trudgill
Author: Janet Holmes
Institution: Victoria University of Wellington
Author: Paul Kerswill
Institution: Lancaster University
Linguistic Field: Sociolinguistics
Abstract: There is much that any sociolinguist would agree with in Peter Trudgill's essay. It is written in his usual lucid style, and supported by a wealth of detail, reflecting his extensive knowledge, research, and scholarly expertise. However, it is stimulatingly provocative on the issue of why particular variants win out in dialect contact situations. Our response falls into two sections: (i) the identity issue, and (ii) the New Zealand situation.
