(p.1) 1 Introduction
Language and Dialect Contact in Ireland

Warren Maguire

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter summarises what the book is about and how it is structured, it introduces the concept of Mid-Ulster English (MUE) and how it relates to other dialects in Ulster and the rest of Ireland, and it describes sources that may be used in the study of the dialect’s phonology. These include not only published data and descriptions, but also substantial unpublished corpora, which the author puts to use in the analysis in the rest of the book. It also includes a new map of the linguistic landscape of Ulster. In addition, it begins to explore the phonological origins of MUE and what kinds of questions we need to answer.

Keywords:   Mid-Ulster English, Irish English, Ulster Scots, Sources, Corpora, Historical Phonology
