The study of comparative syntax in closely related languages has yielded valuable insights into syntactic phenomena--for example in the study of the Romance languages--yet little comparative work has been done on English dialects. This is the first comparison of the syntax of Belfast English and Standard English, using Chomsky's "Principles and Parameters"/Minimalist framework. Alison Henry analyzes various Belfast English constructions and their Standard English counterparts to gain insight into both English syntax and syntactic theory in general. In the process, she makes valuable data on Belfast English readily available for the first time.

About the Author:


Alison Henry was born and reared in Belfast, and after studying Linguistics at York University in England, returned there to lecture in Linguistics at the University of Ulster at Jordanstown.

Review:


"This extremely readable and well-produced book is to be commended for its clarity and lack of obfuscation...This book will be particularly useful for researchers who wish to develop interests in both linguistic theory and language variation, bridging the gulf which has for too long been a feature of the linguistic landscape."--Language in Society
