English in Australia (Varieties of English Around the World)

English in Australia (Varieties of English Around the World)

Edited by David Blair and Peter Collins

John Benjamins Publishing Company

This unique collection fills a ten-year gap in studies on the nature of Australian English, and it is the first to deal exclusively with varieties of English on the Australian continent. The book contains chapters on the phonology, morphology, syntax and the lexicon of the dialect, and chapters on variation within the dialect that include Aboriginal and ethnic varieties as well as regional and generational differences with a focus on questions of Australian identity and intercultural relations. With selected contributions by Australia’s leading linguists this volume records the most recent developments in the study of English within Australia.

This title explores the English language in Australia, focusing on aspects such as structure, phonology, morphology and lexicon, to variation from Torres Strait English and Aboriginal to ethnic varieties and regional variations.
