Abstract

This is the first of two volumes of papers selected from those given at the 12th International Conference on English Historical Linguistics. The second is <i>New Perspectives on English Historical Linguistics (2): Lexis and Transmission</i>. Together the volumes provide an overview of many of the issues that are currently engaging practitioners in the field. In this volume, the primary concern is with the historical grammar of English. Some papers take a broad overview of the subject, positioning it within current advances in linguistic theory, while others deal with specific points of syntax and morphology in a historical context. There is a recurrent emphasis on data collection and analysis, with a chronological range from Old to Present Day English, and a geographical spread from Scotland to Newfoundland. Contributions from scholars around the world remind us that not only English itself but the history of English is now an international possession.

Subjects: Germanic linguistics; Morphology; English linguistics; Historical linguistics; Syntax
