Sommario/riassunto: Do you call it April Fools Day, April Noddy Day, or April Gowkin Day? Is the season before winter the Autumn, the Fall, or the Backend? When you're out of breath, do you pant, puff, pank, tift, or thock? The words we use (and the sounds we make when we use them) are more often than not a product of where we live, and An Atlas of English Dialects will show you where certain words, sounds and phrases are used, and why usage varies from region to region. Based on the Survey of English Dialects, the most extensive record of English regional speech, the Atlas is a fascinating and informative guide to the diversity of the English language in England. The Atlas includes: 90 maps showing the regions in which particular words, phrases and pronunciations are used Detailed commentaries explaining points of linguistic, historical and cultural interest explanations of linguistic terms, a bibliography for further reading, and a full index.
