Up Cambridge. Prepositional Locative Expressions in Dialect Speech: a Corpus-based Study of the Cambridgeshire Dialect
Société Néophilologique
Mémoires de la Société Néophilologique de Helsinki 65
Saarijärvi 2005, 339 pp.


This work draws evidence from the Helsinki Corpus of British English Dialects, and especially from the Cambridgeshire subcorpus. Prepositional locative expressions in continuous dialect speech are examined both qualitatively and quantitatively from the perspectives of speaker-related and situation-related factors, the focus being on the differences and similarities between the speech of males and the speech of females, the role of the interviewer, and the influence of the number of informants present in the talk session.
