Non-Standard Bird Names in England, Bavaria and Austria: A Diachronic Comparative Study

Abstract

A rich contrastive analysis of more than 3000 non-standard bird names based on extensive archival research and the results of a substantial innovative online survey conducted in 2017 with more than 1100 participants from England, Bavaria and Austria. This volume contains insights into morphological, etymological and semantic aspects of a nearly extinct word field and its colourful history, complemented by synchronic aspects of perceptual dialectology
