Edinburgh Textbooks on the English Language - Advanced

General Editor: Professor Heinz Giegerich (University of Edinburgh, UK)

Editorial Advisory Board

The aim of the Edinburgh Textbooks on the English Language series is the
detailed description and explanation of aspects of English. Initially
restricted to introductory-level volumes, the series has now been expanded
to include advanced-level texts.

Introductory Volumes:
The introductory volumes each cover the equivalent of an introductory
course. Together, they cover all those aspects of the language that form a
substantial and identifiable part of introductory English Language courses.
Published volumes cover topics such as English syntax (Jim Miller),
phonology (April McMahon), semantics and pragmatics (Patrick Griffiths) and
morphology (Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy), Old English (Richard Hogg), Middle
English (Simon Horobin & Jeremy Smith), Early Modern English (Terttu
Nevalainen), and international varieties of English (Laurie Bauer).

Advanced volumes
The advanced volumes in the series are not restricted to an entry-level
readership. Therefore, any text on any aspect of the linguistics of English
would be eligible for the series. The only constraints on eligibility are
(1) that all ETOTEL texts must seek to explain, to a student readership,
significant (and, in curricular terms, relevant) ranges of phenomena of
English; and (2) that they take due account of existing knowledge in the
field. Here are two possible examples (both currently under discussion):

-English Historical Syntax. This volume would presuppose a basic knowledge
of (English) syntax and of the history of English.

-Optimality Theory and the Phonology of English. Such a volume would
presuppose a working knowledge of the mainstream phonological phenomena of
English, and of phonological terminology and notation. It would introduce
and develop a version of Optimality Theory so as to present a coherent
picture of the phonology of English.
