The study of the recent history of English is crucial in making connections
between early and present day English. This volume focuses on the
nineteenth century, an important period of both stability and change for
the English language. Through ten detailed case studies, it highlights the
relationships between English, its users, and nineteenth-century society,
looking particularly at gender differences and variation across genres. It
also discusses major structural aspects of nineteenth-century English, such
as nouns, verbs and adjectives, and Germanic vs. Romance vocabulary.
Although the nineteenth century is often viewed as a relatively stable
period in the development of the language, this volume shows the 1800s to
be a time of significant change, some of which continued into the twentieth
century. By making comparisons possible with both earlier and later
periods, it makes an important contribution to our overall understanding of
the history of the English language.
