Abstract:

This volume is concerned with assessing fictional and non-fictional written
texts as linguistic evidence for earlier forms of varieties of English.
These range from Scotland to New Zealand, from Canada to South Africa,
covering all the major forms of the English language around the world.
Central to the volume is the question of how genuine written
representations are. Here the emphasis is on the techniques and methodology
which can be employed when analysing documents. The vernacular styles found
in written documents and the use of these as a window on earlier spoken
modes of different varieties represent a focal concern of the book. Studies
of language in literature, which were offered in the past, have been
revisited and their findings reassessed in the light of recent advances in
variationist linguistics.
