Description: Top linguists from diverse fields address language varieties in the South.

Language Variety in the South Revisited is a comprehensive collection of new research on southern United States English by foremost scholars of regional language variation. Like its predecessor, Language Variety in the South: Perspectives in Black and White (The University of Alabama Press, 1986), this book includes current research into African American vernacular English, but it greatly expands the scope of investigation and offers an extensive assessment of the field. The volume encompasses studies of contact involving African and European languages; analyses of discourse, pragmatic, lexical, phonological, and syntactic features; and evaluations of methods of collecting and examining data. The 38 essays not only offer a wealth of information about southern language varieties but also serve as models for regional linguistic investigation.

"This book is a state-of-the-art representation of scholarship on African-English language contact in the southern United States, on features of southern English, and on methods for studying and mapping linguistic variation within and across communities. Its unique contribution is that it attempts to bring together scholars from a variety of perspectives in a conversation with each other about the varieties of language used within one particular region" -- Patricia C. Nichols San Jose State University

"A significant contribution to scholarly knowledge on the subject of language variation in general and one language variety in particular -- southern American English. The essays are solidly written and encompass sociolinguistics, traditional and modern dialectology,discourse analysis, and lexicography". -- George Dorrill Southeastern Louisiana University
