This collection of essays focuses on current approaches to variation and
change in historical English grammar and lexicon. Of the twelve papers in
the collection, half are based on grammar and syntax, half on lexical
developments. The volume highlights the contributions that strong empirical
research can make to our knowledge of the development of English grammar,
especially as realized in lexical development. In illustration of
contemporary research trends, the articles in the collection make strong
use of extralinguistic factors to discuss language change as well as argue
for internal and structural development.

The authors are drawn from nine different countries, and each article is
followed by a commentary and response that provide actual dialogue about
the issues in the field, thus representing world-wide discussion of issues
in the history of English. The essays recognize the different audiences for
historical variation and change - formal linguists, sociolinguists, and
lexicographers - and specifically address the interests and discourse in
those areas.

The volume shows how historical studies of English are increasingly engaged
with contemporary trends in linguistics, at the same time as demonstrating
how empirical and other methods can bring classical philology fully into
the sphere of contemporary linguistics without abandoning its traditional

Linguistic Field(s): Lexicography
                            Discourse Analysis
