Book Information


Title: Progress in Language. with Special Reference to English. with A New Introduction by James D. Mccawley
Written By: Otto Jespersen

Published one hundred years ago and early in his career, but shows how much importance Jespersen attached to variation in language, how tightly his views on change were integrated with his views on synchronic grammar, and how sociolinguistic his thinking on change was. Also how vast a collection of English examples he had already amassed.
