Abstract:

The handbook "English Historical Linguistics" offers in more than 130
articles in two volumes a comprehensive, interdisciplinary and theory
neutral overview of all central aspects of the history of English.

The first volume contains detailed descriptions of the individual
linguistic levels, from phonology to syntax, semantics and pragmatics, for
each period of the language, from Old English to Late Modern English.
Moreover, the volume offers chapters on particular topics pertaining to
individual periods such as the 'Great Vowel Shift', standardization, and
do-periphrasis.

The second volume takes on a broader perspective and addresses more
theoretical concerns. It covers topics such as resources for studying and
teaching the history of English, historiography, the history of the
discipline itself, theoretical approaches to studying language variation
and change, including recent research trends, and the history of Englishes
in the twentieth century and around the world.
