ItemThe Survey of Vancouver English: A Sociolinguistic Study of Urban Canadian English(2004) Gregg, R.J.This volume serves as an introduction to one of the most extensive sociolinguistic studies ever undertaken in the English-speaking world. It is also a tribute to the enormous energy and learning of the late Robert J. Gregg (Linguistics Department, University of British Columbia), who directed this project. Includes articles by M.M. Murdoch, L. Rodman, E. Hasebe-Ludt, D.J. Richards, G. Dodds de Wolf, and J. Esling. ItemThe Ottawa Survey of Canadian English(1999) Woods, HowardThis survey offers a quantitative documentation of general Canadian usage. Interviews with Canadian-born anglophone citizens of Ottawa were used to extrapolate a phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, and lexical profile of Canadian English. Highlights of the analysis include support of Woods' hypotheses of phonological/stylistic and phonological/socio-economic co-variation. In other words, phonological features varied directly with the level of formality of the speech task and with socio-economic class. ItemThe English Language as Used in Quebec, A Survey(1989) McArthur, TomWhen Tom McArthur, a Scottish linguist and educator, became Associate Professor of English at the Université du Québec, he was quite surprised to discover the extent to which the English of bilingual anglophones in Quebec was influenced by French. In this pioneering study of Quebec English, McArthur records many of its lexical peculiarities and surveys the attitudes of respondents toward gallicisms in their speech. ItemIn Search of the Standard in Canadian English(1986) Lougheed, W.C.This volume contains proceedings of a 1985 conference at Queen's University that gathered a diverse group of professionals working with language (linguists, lexicographers, teachers, journalists, and editors) to discuss their understanding of and guidelines for standard English usage in Canada.
