New Zealand English is currently one of the most researched varieties of English world-wide. This book presents an up-to-date account of all the major aspects of New Zealand English by leading scholars as well as younger specialists in each of the major fields of enquiry. The book is authoritative in its range and represents not only a synopsis of past research, but also new research in many areas of study. It is of interest not just to specialists in regional varieties of English but many of the chapters detail new approaches to the study of dialect phenomena. It contains an introduction describing the external history of New Zealand English and the development of the study of New Zealand English. It comes with a full bibliography of work on New Zealand English and is fully indexed. This book is a significant landmark in the study of English varieties and will prove indispensable for anyone who is a student of English and New Zealand English.

Notes on the contributors
“This latest collection on NZE manages to strike the balance between providing an overview of previous studies on the one hand — what we know and still need to learn about NZE — and original research on the other hand. It was the editors' aim "that the book should serve the interests of students of NZE and scholars of English varieties world wide" (p.22). The articles collected in this volume succeed in doing this: they give an excellent overview of the state of the art in studies on NZE; at the same time, the inclusion of papers which provide a more general theoretical and methodological perspective will not fail to attract the second type of intended speaker.”
