Middle English Word Studies: A Word and Author Index
LOUISE SYLVESTER & JANE ROBERTS

Although detailed and full bibliographies exist for Old English word
studies, this is the first specifically on Middle English
lexicography, focussing on studies of individual Middle English words
and groups of words which offer evidence for word meanings: ante- and
post-datings for the Oxford English Dictionary and the Middle English
Dictionary, missing entries and ghost words, possible proverbs,
proposals for etymologies, wordplay, punning, new readings in
manuscripts and the reinterpretations of textual cruces. It first
presents an annotated bibliography arranged alphabetically by author's
name and date of publication; the annotations include notes on the
contents and approach of each article, cross-references to related
work, and references to reviews. Two indexes follow, the Index of
Words, an alphabetical listing of words that have attracted
significant discussion with references to the author(s), publication
date and notes of pages on which the words are discussed; and an Index
of Authors. The introductory section offers critical analyses of the
word studies. Professor JANE ROBERTS and Dr LOUISE SYLVESTER teach at
King's College London.

East Anglian English
Edited by JACEK FISIAK OBE & PETER TRUDGILL

East Anglia - the easternmost area of England - was probably home to
the first-ever form of language which can be called English. East
Anglian English has had a very considerable input into the formation
of Standard English, and contributed importantly to the development of
American English and (to a lesser extent) Southern Hemisphere
Englishes; it has also experienced multilingualism on a remarkable
scale. However, it has received little attention from linguistic
scholars over the years, and this volume provides an overdue
assessment. The articles, by leading scholars in the field, cover all
aspects of the English of East Anglia from its beginnings to the
present day; topics include place names, non-standard grammar, dialect
phonology, dialect contact, language contact, and a host of other
issues of descriptive, theoretical, historical and sociolinguistic
interest and importance. Professor JACEK FISIAKteaches in the
Department of English at the Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland;
Professor PETER TRUDGILL is Chair of English Linguistics at the
University of Fribourg.
