Summary
"English Accents and Dialects is a unique introductory survey of the main regional and social varieties of English spoken in the British Isles. The authors discuss accent and dialect in the broader framework of language variation, including phonetic, phonological, grammatical, lexical, historical and stylistic differences. This is followed by a survey of the speech of twelve different areas of the British Isles. The cassette which accompanies the book consists of edited interviews (all transcribed in the book) with speakers from each of the different areas." "The third edition has been expanded and updated to give substantial new information. Of particular importance in this new edition are the sections on Lowland Scots, Devon and Dublin speech, and the entirely new chapter on Received Pronunciation. The cassette has been digitally remastered and six new recordings have been added, including samples from three different RP speakers."--BOOK JACKET
