Abstract:

Late Modern English is a fruitful period for linguistic research of all
kinds. This became evident once again at the Third Late Modern English
Conference, held at the University of Leiden in 2007, from which the papers
presented in this volume derive. Themes dealt with include the nature, form
and effects of prescription, an issue of increasing importance during the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; grammars and dictionaries produced
during the period; specific topics in Late Modern English grammar and
lexis; the language of letters; and methodological issues in the study of
Late Modern English as such.
