Lessons from a survey of British dialect grammar
Cheshire, Jenny
Edwards, Viv

Date: 1998
Abstract: This article is intended for non-specialists interested in linguistic and educational issues associated with regional variation in grammar. It is based on the work of the Survey of British Dialect Grammar which entailed an unusual collaboration between linguists and school children. The findings of the survey have made it possible to provide a fuller picture of the national distribution of nonstandard grammatical features and to generate hypotheses about dialect levelling in urban centres. They also provide interesting challenges to educational policy and practice.
