This collection of articles covers a wide range of topics in English
philology and history of linguistics. The volume proceeds from Old English
studies offering a unique perspective and approach in literary and
linguistic research into Anglo-Saxon England. Two articles deal with
English phonology from both historical and contemporary standpoints, and
another with a theoretical discussion of etymological inquiry. The last
section contains three articles focusing on the history of linguistics or
the history of ideas. The wide range of topics addressed in the 12 chapters
of this volume reflects the diversity of interests in the research efforts
of Shoichi Watanabe, professor emeritus at Sophia University, to whom this
volume is dedicated by his former students. He is not only highly valued as
a distinguished professor of English philology, but also acknowledged for
his critique of civilization with his unique view of history and culture.
