Papers in Honour of Dr Jeffrey Kallen
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after October 15, 2021
This collection brings together work from scholars across sociolinguistics, World Englishes, and linguistic landscapes to reflect on developments and future directions in Irish English, building on the groundbreaking contributions of Jeffrey Kallen to the discipline. // Taking their cue from Kallen’s extensive body of work on Irish English, the twenty contributors critically examine advances in the field grounded in frameworks from variationist sociolinguistics and semiotic and border studies in Linguistic Landscapes. Chapters cover pragmatic, cognitive sociolinguistic, sociophonetic, historical, and World Englishes perspectives, as well as two chapters which explore the border between Northern Ireland the Republic of Ireland through the lens of perceptual dialectology and linguistic landscape research. Taken together, the collection showcases the significant role Kallen has played in the growth of Irish English studies as a field in its own right and the impact of this work on a new wave of researchers in the field today and beyond.// This volume will be of particular interest to scholars interested in varieties of English, variationist sociolinguistics, and linguistic landscape research.
