"We All Speak the Same Round Here": Dialect Levelling in a Scottish-English Community.
Dyer, Judy
Journal of Sociolinguistics, v6 n1 p99-116 Feb 2002
Traces across three generations the formation of a new dialect in Corby, Northamptonshire, a steel town in the English Midlands. Focuses on whether dialect levelling processes can account for the features of the new dialect formed by contact between the displaced Scottish and English inhabitants in the town. (Author/VWL)
