Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 296
Description:

The papers collected in this volume were first presented at the 14th
International Conference on English Historical Linguistics (Bergamo, 2006).
Alongside studies of syntax, morphology, and dialectology, published in two
sister volumes, many innovative contributions focused on semantics,
pragmatics and register variation. A rich variety of state-of-the-art
studies and plenary lectures by acknowledged world experts in the field
bears witness to the quality of the scholarly interest in this field of
research. In all the contributions, well-established methods combine with
new theoretical approaches, in an attempt to shed more light on phenomena
that have hitherto remained unexplored, or have only just begun to be
investigated. The accurate peer-reviewed selection ensures the
methodological homogeneity of the papers.
