Abstract:

"This volume is concerned with one of the few thorough-going Labovian studies carried out in Britain. Based on a survey of over 100 randomly-selected informants from the towns of Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield, it deals first with the methodology employed, and then sketches some aspects of the 'traditional' dialects of the ares before describing a large number of variables. Other non-standard features encountered during the survey are described, since these too are part of the changing patterns of speech in West Yorkshore. The final chapter draws a distinction between'dialect' and 'accent' which is slightly different from that generally employed, and suggests that while 'dialect' features seem to have declined under the presure of the standard language, 'accent' still persists as social differentiator."--Page 4 of cover.
