The aim of this short article is to provide an overview of phonological andmorphosyntactic aspects of the dialect of Carlisle English, an urban variety of north-ern English. Carlisle English is relatively unknown in England and when heard it isoften identified as Newcastle English or Scottish English. Its geographical isolation,the proximity to the Scottish border and its relation to Newcastle in the north east ofthe country give this urban area a unique setting which provides insights into the useand absence of linguistic identity markers.
