Abstract

CAMBRIDGESHIRE DIALECT GRAMMAR is a morphosyntactic enquiry into the variety of English spoken in rural Cambridgeshire in the 1970s. The GRAMMAR covers the use of verbs, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs and prepositions typical of the Cambridgeshire dialect as it was recorded in the 1970s in the speech of the 19 informants selected for the study.
CAMBRIDGESHIRE DIALECT GRAMMAR is accompanied by the Cambridgeshire sampler of the HELSINKI ARCHIVE OF REGIONAL ENGLISH SPEECH (HARES), a collection of transcribed and annotated interviews from Cambridgeshire, including audio data.
