Pressestimmen"To sum up, the book constitutes an excellent tool not only for the scholars or students interested in Irish English, but also for the study and analysis of some of the fundamental issues that are still being discussed in Dialectology and Language Variation and Change. It is also a useful tool not only for those involved in the teaching of Varieties of English around the world, Sociolinguistics, and Language contact, but also for drama students who may be interested in working on the speech of an Irish character."Carolina Amador Morenoin: Linguist List 16.21195/2005
