Abstract:

This volume brings together current research by international scholars on thevarieties of English spoken in Ireland. The papers apply contemporarytheoretical and methodological approaches and frameworks to a range of topics.A number of papers explore the distribution of linguistic features in IrishEnglish, including the evolution of linguistic structures in Irish English andlinguistic change in progress, employing broadly quantitative sociolinguisticapproaches. Pragmatic features of Irish English are explored through corpuslinguistics-based analysis. The construction of linguistic corpora usingwritten and recorded material form the focus of other papers, extending andanalyzing the growing range of corpus material available to researchers ofvarieties of English, including diaspora varieties. Issues of language andidentity in contemporary Ireland are explored in several contributions usingboth qualitative and quantitative methods.
