"I Don't Speak with a Geordie Accent, I Speak, Like, the Northern Accent": Contact-Induced Levelling in the Tyneside Vowel System.
Watt, Dominic
Journal of Sociolinguistics, v6 n1 p44-63 Feb 2002
Evidence is presented of the levelling of the Tyneside (Newcastle) English vowel system toward that of a putative regional standard. This process is hypothesized to follow from the fragmentation of tight-knit urban communities that formed after large-scale immigration to Tyneside from elsewhere in the British Isles during the 18 and 19th centuries.
