Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 252
Description:

This is the second of two volumes of papers selected from those given at
the 12th International Conference on English Historical Linguistics. The
first is New Perspectives on English Historical Linguistics (1): Syntax and
Morphology. Together the volumes provide an overview of many of the issues
that are currently engaging practitioners in the field. In this volume, the
primary concern is with the historical study of the English lexicon and its
sound and writing systems. Using research tools such as machine-readable
text and lexical corpora, and intellectual tools such as corpus and
cognitive linguistics, many of the papers move from a close study of a set
of data to conclusions of theoretical significance, often concerning
questions of classification and organisation. More broadly, whether
concerned with lexicology or transmission, the papers have a social
orientation, since neither lexicology nor phonology can be seen as divorced
from its social setting.
