The eighteenth century was a key period in the development of the English
language, in which the modern standard emerged and many dictionaries and
grammars first appeared. This book is divided into thematic sections which
deal with issues central to English in the eighteenth century. These
include linguistic ideology and the grammatical tradition, the contribution
of women to the writing of grammars, the interactions of writers at this
time and how politeness was encoded in language, including that on a
regional level. The contributions also discuss how language was seen and
discussed in public and how grammarians, lexicographers, journalists,
pamphleteers and publishers judged on-going change. The novel insights
offered in this book extend our knowledge of the English language at the
onset of the modern period.
