This volume presents a collection of some 130 contributions
covering a wide range of topics of interest to historical,
theoretical and applied linguists alike. A major theme is the
development of English which is examined on several levels in the
light of recent linguistic theory in various papers. The
geographical dimension is also treated extensively, with papers on
controversial aspects of variety studies, as are topical
linguistic matters from a more general perspective.
