To understand the characteristics of present-day English language and
culture we must have some understanding of the earlier stages of language
use. Bells Chiming from the Past investigates the early development
of English and covers different aspects of English medieval studies, from
traditional philological concerns, to the most recent perspectives of
modern linguistics applied to early English texts. Most of the papers are
based on empirical research in English Historical Linguistics, and will
contribute substantially to our theoretical and descriptive understanding
of English varieties, both written and spoken.

The book focuses on the relationship and interaction of language and
culture during the Middle English period. Some of the articles are clearly
linguistically-oriented, but most could be included under a wider
philological perspective since they study both language and the cultural
milieu in which linguistic events took place.

Bells Chiming from the Past is aimed at an international readership
and makes a desirable addition to the field of Historical Linguistics,
featuring as it does contributions from an array of well-known
professionals from different academic and scientific institutions.
