Hiberno-English and the teaching of modern and contemporary Irish literature in an EFL context
Asián, Anna
McCullough, James

Fecha: 1998
Resumen: In this paper, we provide a brief historical, linguistic, and literary guide to Hiberno-English, or Irish English, for teachers of English as a Foreign Language who use literature in their classes. We discuss the historical and social development of this dialect and relate it to the works of such authors as Joyce, Synge and Kennelly. Then we describe certain linguistic and cultural features of it which appear in literary texts and could lead to misinterpretations if they are not taken into account. Finally, we discuss how to use works written in non-standard varieties of English, like Hiberno-English, in the classroom, basing our discussion on an early twentieth century play, The Tinker's Wedding by Synge, and a current novel and film, The Snapper, by Doyle.
