Cityscapes and Perceptual Dialectology : Global Perspectives on Non-Linguists' Knowledge of the Dialect - image 1 of 1

about this item

Linguists present findings from their research addressing the perception of dialects in and from the vantage point of urban areas, illustrating cross-linguistic and intra-linguistic differences between the perceptions of dialect in quite different locations. The overall themes are differences in the perception of rural and urban areas, processes of perception and language change, and the relationship between perception and "reality." Among the topics are developing methods in perceptual dialectology, perceptions of urban and rural English in Washington State, mapping dialect perceptions in and out of Seoul, the strength of stereotypes in the production and perception of the Viennese dark lateral, and real and perceived variation in Dublin English.
