9780817352448: Heartland English: Variation and Transition in the American Midwest

 

            A Publication in the Centennial Series of the American Dialect Society in celebration of the beginning of its second century of research into language variation in America.             “Heartland” English is the first book-length scholarly treatment of English spoken in the Midwest, or the northern interior of the continental United States. Frazer and his contributors focus on the myth of a uniform, “Midwestern” variety of American English. They show the complex region in which forces-old and new- have led to variety in the spoken language. Contributors include: Craig M. Carver, Thomas Donahue, Rachel Faries, Ticmothy Frazer, Timothy Habick, Robin Herndobler, Donald Lance, Donald Larmouth, Michael Miller, Thomas Murray, Denis Preston, Marjorie Remsing, Timothy Riney, Andre Sledd, Bruce Southard, and Erick Thomas.

From the Back Cover:

"""This is a much-needed book, one just chock full of interesting studies.""--American Speech
"
"This admirabel collection of 17 essays on dialectical variation is unified by the desire to dicredit the myth of 'General American'--that English in the Midwest is uniform and may even constitute a 'Standard English.' The methods employed in these studies and their results are consitently interesting and informative.""--Choice
""The language of the Midwest here receives a first comprehensive survey. . . . A well-edited, stimulating collection which will convince readers that the Midwest is worth closer inspection--linguistically and otherwise.""--English World-Wide"
