The present volume seeks to unite the research of a range of scholars working on features of non-standard, vernacular English which show an areal distribution, i.e. which cluster geographically across the world. The volume is concerned with dialect input, innovations among varieties of English andthe areal diffusion of features among varieties. These and similar issues form the central focus of the volume.

About the Author:

Raymond Hickey, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Germany.

Review:

"In sum, 'Areal features of the Anglophone world' achieves its goal of applying "areal considerations in the analysis of change in varieties of English ... (for) a better understanding of the configurations found throughout the Anglophone world" (p. 13). It is recommended for linguists and linguistic anthropologists working in the fields of dialectology, variation, language contact and change, and sociolinguistic research on "non-traditional" or less-studied varieties. While less suitable for non-specialist readers, it will be extremely useful to scholars seeking an informative and thought-provoking resource on the distributional and structural aspects of English dialects, and to those engaging with a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to areal processes."
