Book Information

   

Title: Introduction to Early Modern English
Description:

"An introduction to Early Modern English," helps students of English and
linguistics to place the language of the period 1500-1700 in its historical
context as a language with a common core but also one which varies across
time, regionally and socially, and according to register. The volume
focuses on the structure of what contemporaries called the General Dialect
-- its spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation -- and on its
dialectal origins. The book also discusses the language situation and
linguistic anxieties in England at a time when Latin exerted a strong
influence on the rising standard language.
