Anette I. Hagan con Urban Scots Dialect Writing

This study explores the fundamental issues - linguistic, historical, cultural and discoursive - involved in the written representation of urban Scots. Offering a comprehensive linguistic description of Glaswegian, it examines its use and functions in 20th-century Glasgow fiction. The study argues that urban Scots is a coherent variety perfectly suitable as a literary medium alongside any other standard or non-standard variety of English. Throughout, the book draws on examples from Glasgow fiction for illustration, culminating in the analyses of representative text passages and of authenticity in their dialogue representation.
