Abstract

This article reports on a qualitative study of people‟s perceptions of dialect differences and similarities in part of North East England. Its main objective is to add to an understanding of the influence of geographical, social and cultural factors on the placing of subjective dialect boundaries. It does this in the context of a widely remarked upon inter-city rivalry within the region.
