Editorial Reviews


"The breadth of information Leitner brings together in this series makes it a perfect ready-reference and springboard for casual enthusiast and scholars of Australian languagues alike."Louisa Willoughby in: Linguist List 16.955 "One can only commend the book's underlying aim, to provide a unified description of Australian English, within a contemporary linguistic paradigm. It brings light sources that will be of interest to future researchers and provides a map of that very large geographical and sociolinguistic landscape."Pam Peters in: Journal of English Linguistics 6/2005 "Leitner is not the first to conceive the idea of relating language developments with the socio-political history of the continent, but he has done it more extensively than earlier writers like Jupp, Ozolins, Clyne and Mitchell. And he is the first to explore the possibility of treating all the major questions within a single overarching concept. And that makes history!"Arthur Delbridge in Zeitschrift fur Australienstudien, 19, 2005 "These volumes really are now the standard reference work on the Australian language habitat, past and present; every library should have copies."Scott F. Kiesling in: World Englishes
