Breaking away from previously rigid descriptions of the linguistic system of the English language, "Crossing Linguistic Boundaries" explores fascinating case studies which refuse to fall neatly within the traditional definitions of linguistic domains and boundaries. Bringing together leading international scholars in English linguistics, this volume focusses on these controversies in relation to seeking to overcome the temporal and geographical limits of the English language.

Approaching tensions in the areas of English phonology and phonetics, pragmatics, semantics, morphology and syntax, chapters discuss not only British and American English but also a wide variety of geographical variants. Containing synchronic and diachronic studies covering different periods in the history of English, "Crossing Linguistic Boundaries" will appeal to anyone interested in linguistic variation in English.
