Abstract:

The 19 papers in this volume are a selection from a UCLA conference
intended to take stock of the state of the field at the beginning of
the new millennium and to stimulate research in English Historical
Linguistics. The authors are predominantly U.S. scholars. The fields
represented include morphosyntax and semantics, grammaticalization,
discourse analysis, dialectology, lexicography, the diachronic study
of mixed language texts, phonology and metrics.
