Abstract:

The contributions in this book discuss letter-writing from 1400 to 1800,
and the material studied ranges from the late medieval Paston Letters and
the correspondence between Sweden and the German Hanse to Early Modern
English family letters and correspondence in natural history between
England and North America in the eighteenth century. By bringing a set of
corpus linguistic, discourse analytic, pragmatic and sociolinguistic
approaches to bear on historical letter-writing activity, the articles both
extend and complement the traditional letter-writing research in the
history of European languages, which approaches the topic from a largely
rhetorical perspective. The articles in this book were first published as a
Special Issue of the (5:2, 2004), share a contextualised view of letters:
whether approached from the perspective of language contact, social and
discursive practices, intertextuality, audience design or linguistic
politeness, letters are analysed as part of their specific familial,
business or scientific network. Writing letters thus emerges as highly
context-sensitive social interaction.
