Abstract:

This Festschrift comprises a series of papers written in honour of the philologist
Andreas Fischer, on the occasion of his sixty-fifth birthday. As in Andreas
Fischer's own research, the main focus of the volume is on words: words in
modern varieties, such as emergent conjunctions in Australian, American and
British English; words in their cultural and historical context, such as English
keywords in Old Norse literature; and words in a diachronic perspective, such as
Romance suffixation in the history of English. Many contributions are anchored
in the philological tradition that has informed much of Andreas Fischer's own
scholarship, such as the study of verbal duelling in the late thirteenth-century
romance Kyng Alisaunder. Others examine the construction ofdiscourses, such
as those surrounding the Black Death. The volume, with its innovative studies,
offers fascinating insights into words, discourses,and their contexts, both past
and present.
