On Standard English, Its Speakers, and Others in the Long Eighteenth Century

Daniel DeWispelare

Covering topics such as the diverse linguistic identities of escaped slaves in 1760s America, the coercive technologies used to teach English in Ireland in the 1790s, and Sequoyah’s invention of the Cherokee alphabet, Daniel DeWispelare’s study describes how English spread globally during the 18th century, the encounters of ‘standard’ English with multilingual, dialect and other nonstandard speakers and writers, and their importance to Anglophone culture.
