Do you throw a ball or do you chuck, fling, hain, hoy, scop or yack it?
Do you lay the table, do you set it, or do you simply fettle the tea?
Have you ever wondered about the difference between workmate, marrer, and butty? Between viper and adder? Or between cross-eyed and cock-eyed?
Based on findings of the Survey of English Dialects - the most extensive record of English regional speech in the mid-twentieth century - An Atlas of English Dialects is a fascinating guide to the diversity of English regional speech.
90 maps show the distribution of words and pronunciations throughout England
Helpful detailed notes accompany the maps to explain points of linguistic, historical, and cultural interest
Indexes help the reader to locate information, and point non-specialists to definitions of technical linguistic terms
