Language, Society and Identity in early Iceland offers a
much-needed exploration into the problem of linguistic and social
identity construction in early Iceland, and is a fascinating
account of an under examined historical-linguistic story that will
spur further research and discussion amongst researchers.

  • Engages with recent theoretical research on dialect formation
    and language isolation

  • Makes a significant contribution to our understanding of
    dialect development, putting forward a persuasive hypothesis
    accounting for the lack of dialect variation in Icelandic

  • Uses a unique, multi-disciplinary approach that brings together
    material from a wide range of fields for a comprehensive
    examination of the role of language in identity construction

  • Opens up opportunities for further research, especially for
    those concerned with language and identity in Iceland today, where
    there is for the first time sociolinguistic variation
