1. Laker, S., New urban and rural British English varieties in the Northeast, English in Contact, 2019.03, This paper investigates the development of British English dialects in northeast England in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially those in North Yorkshire. Traditional rural dialects, which are well documented since the 17th century, have undergone major changes in different directions through changing circumstances, such as the introduction of mining and the steel working industry with major population changes and movements. Key developments in phonology, morphology and lexis are charted, and the differences between urban Teesside accents, as centred around Middlesborough, and more rural East Cleveland dialects are juxtaposed. Special attention is given to dialect geography on the basis of maps..

3. Laker, S., Early English phonology as revealed through place-names, International Conference on English Historical Linguistics 20, 2018.08, This paper provides a synoptic view of surviving pre-Anglo Saxon place-names in England (excluding Cornwall) and southern Scotland. After presenting details on the numbers and distribution of the names judged to be either etymologically probable or possible, I show how consonants and long vowels in the place-name elements have different phonological forms in different areas of England and southern Scotland. Particular attention is paid to whether velar consonants in British names are palatalised before and/or after palatal vowels, and on how British long vowels have different reflexes in different regions of Britain. These differences usual stem from: 1) dialectal variation in British; 2) variation in Old English dialects; or 3) the effects of later contacts (e.g. with Norse). In some instances, however, the reasons are not entirely clear. Given that hundreds of place-names survive, it is surprising that handbooks on English historical phonology usually afford them little or no consideration at all..
