Newfoundland and Labrador English
February 2010 saw the publication of Newfoundland and Labrador English, written by ELRC Management Committee member Sandra Clarke. This volume, published by Edinburgh University Press, is the first to provide a general introduction to the English of this province. It includes accessible descriptions of the pronunciation, grammatical, and lexical features of local English varieties, along with an account of the province’s extensive linguistic variation in terms of historical, regional, and social factors. It also contains language samples from both traditional and contemporary speakers (with accompanying online sound files), plus an overview of published work from earlier centuries to the present. It is available locally at Memorial University Bookstore, or may be ordered online from Edinburgh Press.
