E-mail this message to a friend

Some weeks ago I made a call for an online peer-reviewed volume, entitled
'Marginal dialects' (20.369 FYI: 'Marginal dialects': Call for refereed
online book). While response has been good, I would like to reinforce the
point that i am interested in discussions of these phenomena beyond
Scotland and Ireland. Examples might include Albanian in Italy, the south
Jutland/north Schleswig region, the 'dialects' of Latvian and Lithuanian,
and so on. As far as I know, no volume on specifically this topic has ever
been produced.

If you are interested in writing an essay of some 5000 words on any essay
connected to this subject, please get in touch!

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Sociolinguistics
