Subject: Re: query on Cockney

On Thu, 11 Apr 1996, Cukor-Avila Patricia asked about a "good book (or

ariticle or dictionary) giving a 1-2 page definition/history of the

Cockney dialect"

A starting point might be:

Hughes, Arthur, and Peter Trudgill. 1979. English accents and dialects.

London: Edward Arnold. Pp. 39-43. (A tape accompanied the book when it

was published.)
