Smith, Jennifer
Language Variation and Change, v13 n2 p109-34 2001
Conducts quantitative analysis of negative concord in Buckie, a relic dialect from the northeast of Scotland, and compares findings with varieties of English in North America. Results show Buckie has high rates of use of negative concord, as do all the dialects included in the study. Negative concord in other environments is found in certain varieties in the New World that have no counterparts in the Old World. (Author/VWL)
