Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 183
Description:

The Language of Daily Life in England (1400-1800) is an important
state-of-the art account of historical sociolinguistic and socio-pragmatic
research. The volume contains nine studies and an introductory essay which
discuss linguistic and social variation and change over four centuries.
Each study tackles a linguistic or social phenomenon, and approaches it
with a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods, always embedded
in the socio-historical context. The volume presents new information on
linguistic variation and change, while evaluating and developing the
relevant theoretical and methodological tools. The writers form one of the
leading research teams in the field, and, as compilers of the Corpus of
Early English Correspondence, have an informed understanding of the data in
all its depth. This volume will be of interest to scholars in historical
linguistics, sociolinguistics and socio-pragmatics, but also e.g. social
history. The approachable style of writing makes it also inviting for
advanced students.
