Abstract:

The volume brings together seventeen peer-reviewed, revised papers originally
presented at the 16th International Conference on English Historical
Linguistics (ICEHL 16), held in August 2010 at the University of Pécs,
Hungary. This selection aims to show how theoretical and empirical approaches
can be combined in the historical investigation of the English language, what
insights and exact information can be obtained about language change in the
history of English with the help of tools like historical corpora or with
inter- and transdisciplinary methods. The volume is arranged around five
thematic headings. The first discusses dialects and regional variation from
the viewpoint of contact linguistics and phonological, morphological, and
lexical change. The second has syntactic variation and grammaticalization as
its focus. Papers on grammatical changes in nominal and pronominal
constructions are presented in part three. The integration of loanwords in
Middle English is discussed in part four, and the last investigates
communicative intentions in historical discourse.

The volume should appeal to linguists interested in historical aspects of
dialect and discourse studies, historical pragmatics, contact linguistics,
grammaticalization theory, corpus linguistics, and of course language change.
