Title: An Outline of Anglo-Saxon Grammar
Written By: JamesWBright
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica
Description:

The following outline of Anglo-Saxon Grammar is restricted to the West-Saxon
Dialect, that form of the language which in the reign of Alfred the Great (871-
901) became dominant for literary purposes and maintained that supremacy to
the close of the Anglo-Saxon period. The changes which took place within the
West-Saxon Dialect, though slight in respect of phonology and inflection, make
it necessary to distinguish Early West-Saxon, the language of Alfred's time,
from Late West-Saxon, the language of the following two and a half centuries,
with Ælfric (died between 1020 and 1025 as the central literary figure.

In this outline EWS is regarded as the norm to which LWS is subordinated.
Contents: Grammar (Phonology, inflection (declension, conjugation). (re-edition;
originally published London, 1906).
