    Many varieties of English are now spoken across the world, each gradually evolving from one generation to the next. But which key features of these dialects grew up in their new contexts and which are the legacy of their origins in England and Scotland? Tagliamonte's groundbreaking investigation focuses on the ways in which four dialects from northern Britain have influenced aspects of the language used in areas of the world where the founding populations came from these dialect regions.
