      Language in the British Isles The British Isles are home to a vast range of different spoken and signed languages and dialects. Language continues to evolve rapidly, in its diversity, in the number and the backgrounds of its speakers and in the repercussions it has had for political and educational affairs. This bookFile Size: KB. Climates of the British Isles provides a comprehensive account of what we know about climate and changing climates at the end of the twentieth century. Integrating the historical and geographical dimensions of climate, the crucial link between past and future climatic conditions is examined through the geographical lens of the British Isles.

        As there are chapters on the Isle of Man, the Northern Isles (Orkney and Shetland) and the Channel Islands, the book might equally well have been called 'Languages in the British Isles', were it not for the fact that Trudgill () and Britain (forthcoming) use . Unlike most other texts, 'A History of the British Isles' is not just a history of England. Proper weight is given to all four, often fractious, components of the British Isles – England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - providing the reader with an admirably balanced and absorbing narrative of an extraordinary shared past.
