Описание: A thoroughly revised and updated edition of the classic text, American English: Dialects and Variation 3e chronicles the ongoing story of language variation in American English. For the first time, this textbook is accompanied by a companion website hosting a wealth of audio and video clips that enhance the themes and discussions of the text. The authors explore contexts ranging from historically isolated, rural dialects to developing, urban ethnic varieties, and include new discussions on Jewish English and Asian–American English to complement coverage on African–American, Latino, Cajun, and Native American English, as they guide the reader through the evolving theoretical framework of variationist sociolinguistics and its recent breakthroughs. The engaging and accessible style of this book has long made it a favorite of students and professors alike; with its new features, including a glossary and extensive appendix of pronunciation and lexical features of American Englishes, it is sure to be a mainstay of sociolinguistics classes for years to come.
Описание: The first study of its kind, Regional Variation in Written American English takes a corpus-based approach to map over a hundred grammatical alternation variables across the United States. A multivariate spatial analysis of these maps shows that grammatical alternation variables follow a relatively small number of common regional patterns in American English, which can be explained based on both linguistic and extra-linguistic factors. Based on this rigorous analysis of extensive data, Grieve identifies five primary modern American dialect regions, demonstrating that regional variation is far more pervasive and complex in natural language than is generally assumed. The wealth of maps and data and the groundbreaking implications of this volume make it essential reading for students and researchers in linguistics, English language, geography, computer science, sociology and communication studies.
