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.
