English in Wales and a "Welsh Valleys" Accent.
Walters, J. Roderick
World Englishes, v20 n3 p285-304 Nov 2001
Focuses on Welsh English, providing a brief historical account of the growth of English in Wales, which has only recently supplanted Welsh as the dominant language. Describes an accent in the industrialized "Valleys" area of South Wales, where less than 10% of the population speaks Welsh. Examines its phonology to see what the defining characteristics are and also to see how Welsh it is. (Author/VWL)
