Promotional Information

A comprehensive 2007 survey of the development and present-day features of English in Northern and the Republic of Ireland.


'Raymond Hickey's Irish English is a work of impressive scholarship, very well documented and thoroughly researched. Together with the same author's invaluable Source Book for Irish English (Hickey, 2002), corpus of Irish English (Hickey, 2003), Sound Atlas of Irish English (Hickey, 2004),and ... study of Dublin English (Hickey, 2005), this book constitutes a definitive account of the historical development and present-day situation of Ir.E., and signposts directions for possible future research into language change and language contact in Ireland.' Journal of Sociolinguistics
'All in all, RH's book is an indispensable source of information to anyone interested in Irish English and its distinctive features. As a one-man project, it is a real tour de force on the part of the author and must have demanded an exceptional amount of work and dedication.' Markku Filppula, The Journal of English Language and Linguistics
