Meeting Description:

Henry Sweet Society for the History of Linguistic Ideas

Annual Colloquium: 'Celebrating Henry Fowler'

University of Nottingham
Monday, March 31st, 2008

The 2008 Annual Colloquium of the Henry Sweet Society for the History of
Linguistic Ideas will take place on March 31st, 2008, at the University of
Nottingham. Since this is a year in which the international ICHOLS conference is
taking place (Potsdam, 2008), the colloquium is a one-day event only.

2008 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Henry Fowler, author of Fowler's
Modern English Usage, published in 1926 and still influential today. To mark the
occasion, we are delighted to announce a plenary lecture by Professor Ingrid
Tieken-Boon van Ostade (University of Leiden) on:

Henry Fowler and the Birth of the Usage Guide

Professor Tieken-Boon van Ostade heads a major project on The codifiers and the
English language: Tracing the norms of Standard English at the University of Leiden.


A registration form will be circulated to all members of the Henry Sweet Society
via email in due course. If you would like to receive a registration form and
are not a member of the society or do not have email access, please contact
Nicola McLelland .
