CLARKE, Sandra (ed.)
Although varieties of North American English have come in
for a good deal of linguistic scrutiny in recent years, the vast majority
of published works have dealt with American rather than Canadian English.
This volume constitutes a welcome addition to our linguistic knowledge of
English-speaking Canada. While the focus of the volume is primarily synchronic,
several of the dozen papers it contains offer a diachronic perspective on
Canadian English. Topics range from general issues in Canadian lexicography
and orthography to sociolinguistic studies of varieties of English spoken
in all major geographical areas of the country: Atlantic Canada, Ontario,
Quebec and the West. A theme common to many of the articles is the relationship
of Canadian English to American varieties to the south. This volume is intended
for all those with an interest in Canadian English, past and present.
