Abstract:

The book deals with the development of descriptive models of English
grammar writing during the Early Modern English period. For the first time,
morphology and syntax as presented in Early Modern English grammars are
systematically investigated as a whole. The statements of the contemporary
grammarians are compared to hypotheses made in modern descriptions of Early
Modern English and, where necessary, checked against the Early Modern
English part of the Helsinki Corpus. Thus, a comprehensive overview of the
characteristic features of Early Modern English is complemented by
conclusions about the descriptive adequacy of Early Modern English
grammars. It becomes evident that comments by contemporary authors
occasionally reflect the corpus data more adequately than the statements
found in modern secondary literature.

This book is of interest to (advanced) university students, as well as for
scholars of English and grammarians in general.

Ute Dons is affiliated with the Technical University Aachen, Germany.
