About this product
- DescriptionEnglish as spoken in the rth of England has a rich social and cultural history; however it has often been neglected by historical linguists, whose research has focused largely on the development of 'Standard English'. In this groundbreaking, alternative account of the history of English, Northern English takes centre stage for the first time. Emphasising its richness and variety, the book places rthern speech and culture in the context of identity, icography, mental maps, boundaries and marginalisation. It reassesses the role of Northern English in the development of Modern Standard English, draws some pioneering conclusions about the future of Northern English, and considers the origins of the many images and stereotypes surrounding rtherners and their speech. Numerous maps, and a useful index of rthern English words and pronunciations, are included. Invative and original, Northern English will be welcomed by all those interested in the history and regional diversity of English.
