Example text

They arise from a consciousness of the development of a stable (but variable) urban vernacular norm in London, knowledge that its norms differ from those of other varieties, and a belief in the superiority of London norms over those of other regions. What we are dealing with here is sociolinguistic: the development of supra-local regional and social attitudes to language. What we are not dealing with is a fully-fledged "standard" pronunciation that can then be most usefully described in terms of a unilinear history since that time.

Shaftesbury advocated "politeness" as a reform of modern discourse, which he thought paralyzed between the vacuity of most ordinary conversations and the inaccessibility of most learned writings. He endorsed educated conversation as a paradigm for both modern sociability and modern inquiry. This conversational model underwrote his most typical and influential proclamations, such as the contention that "Wi'i will mend upon our hands, and Humor will refine it-self; if we take care not to tamper with it, and bring it under Constraint, by severe Usage and rigorous Prescriptions.

The argument between the gentleman and the pedant, under the auspices of "politeness", stamped discussion of the varieties of verbal and artistic expression. If "politeness" endorsed conversibility in texts, it also struck a social register in which the gentlemanly asserted itself. "Politeness" was aggressive gentlemanliness, self-confident, appropriating. The spread of "politeness" from discourse to discourse reflected the appropriation of the world of social, intellectual and literary creation by gentlemen.
