The Cambridge History of the English Language
Volume 3: 1476-1776
Editor
Roger Lass, University of Cape Town

This volume of the Cambridge History of the English Language
encompasses three centuries of immense cultural change, from Caxton in
the late Middle Ages to the American Declaration of Independence and
the beginnings of Romanticism. During this period, Middle English
became Early Modern English and then developed into the early stages
of indisputably "modern" English. This book traces developments in
orthography and punctuation, phonology and morphology, syntax, lexis
and semantics, regional and social variation, and the literary
language. It also contains a glossary of linguistic terms and an
extensive bibliography.
