Book Information

   

Title: Old English Phonology
Written By: Roger Lass
John M. Anderson
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 14
Description:

A detailed study of Old English, taking as its point of departure the
‘standard theory’ of generative phonology as developed by Chomsky and
Halle. Dr Lass and Dr Anderson set out all the main phonological processes
of Old English and against their larger historical background (including
subsequent developments in the history of English). They propose many fresh
solutions to long-standing problems in the history and structure of Old
English. The result is an extensive and sophisticated treatment of this
subject. An important theory is examined against a well-studied body of
linguistic knowledge, and is partly validated and partly revised. The book
will be important for all linguistics and historians of English and
Indo-European.
