Title: A Grammar of Old English: Morphology, Volume 2
Written By: † Richard M. Hogg
Robert D Fulk

“A Grammar of Old English, Volume II: Morphology” completes the two-
volume analysis of the sounds and grammatical forms of the Old English
language that began with Richard M. Hogg's highly regarded “Grammar of Old
English: Phonology”. Initiated by Richard Hogg, and revised and completed
by R.D. Fulk, this new volume incorporates insights derived from recent
theoretical and technological advances, focusing on the morphological
structure of Old English words. Most helpful in this regard is the use of digital
resources, foremost of which are databases compiled by the “Dictionary of

“A Grammar of Old English, Volume II: Morphology” offers rich and rewarding
insights into an important branch of linguistics relating to the development of
an early form of the English language. This work, paired with the re-released
“Volume 1”, is essential for scholars in the field.
