"Denison's work is likely to become a standard work in the
field. Reading it is stimulating and challenging." Linguistics

"The range of topics covered in this book will make it relevant to
anyone interested in the history of English syntax in general, and the
solid scholarship behind the observations made makes it an excellent
starting point for any investigation." Diachronica

This study brings together many of the resources needed for the
exploration of English historical syntax and deals with many of the
important changes in English sentence structure from Old English to
present. It also features a survey of published research from both
classical and modern linguistic traditions, as well as new research by
the author. It provides guidance on methodology, important reference
materials, and the general history of the English language.
