    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book provides a detailed overview of the main phonological, grammatical, lexical and discourse features of Liverpool English (LE). These will be discussed in terms of (1) LE’s past, including the origins of the variety, and its relationships with other north-west English dialects and Irish varieties, and (2) ongoing change in LE, including the extent to which LE linguistic features are levelling or diverging from supralocal norms.
