Historical Linguistics 1989
Papers from the 9th International Conference on Historical Linguistics, New Brunswick, 14–18 August 1989
The present volume contains revised versions of selected papers from the general sessions of ICHL 9. The 34 papers cover topics from the full range of contemporary historical linguistic scholarship. The papers address issues of language change in a large variety of languages and language families, both Indo-European and non-Indo-European: students of Germanic linguistics will likely find the volume to be of particular interest, as more than a dozen contributions deal with developments in Afrikaans, Dutch, English, German and Icelandic. The volume includes an index of names and languages.
