Historical Linguistics is a series of advanced textbooks in Historical
Linguistics, where individual volumes cover key subfields within Historical
Linguistics in depth. As a whole, the series will provide a comprehensive
introduction to this broad and increasingly complex field. The series is
aimed at advanced undergraduates in Linguistics and students in language
departments, as well as beginning postgraduates who are looking for an
entry point. Volumes in the series are serious and scholarly university
textbooks, theoretically informed and substantive in content. Every volume
will contain pedagogical features such as recommendations for further
reading, but the tone of each volume is discursive, explanatory and
critically engaged, rather than ‘activity-based’. Notes should be
incorporated into the text.
