Abstract:

"Advanced students of linguistics and practising linguists can read this
book for both profit and enjoyment. The editors have assembled an
impressive list of leading experts in each subfield, each contributing a
chapter: together it makes for an interesting and informative read."
Professor Sheila Embleton, Department of Languages, Literature &
Linguistics, York University, Canada

The Continuum Companion to Historical Linguistics brings together a number
of leading scholars who provide a combination of different approaches to
current and new issues in historical linguistics, while supplying an
exhaustive and up-to-date coverage of sub-fields traditionally regarded as
central to historical linguistics research. The editors aim to build a
solid background for further discussion and to indicate directions for new
research on relevant open questions.

The book includes coverage of key terms, a list of resources, and sections on:
* history of research
* methodology
* phonology
* morphology
* grammatical categories
* syntax
* grammaticalization
* semantics
* etymology
* language contact
* sociolinguistics
* causes of language change

It is a complete resource for researchers working on historical linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
