Lancashire dialect

Project: Other

Description

In this project I aim to investigate what makes the Lancashire dialect distinct from other dialects in the UK. While dialectologists have traditionally concerned themselves almost exclusively with accent and vocabulary, I focus on grammar. The question I am particularly interested in is twofold: (i) how can grammatical variation and change in dialects be accounted for by linguistic theory, and (ii) in what ways does this variation lead to new theoretical insights?
