Abstract:

This collection of essays focuses on current approaches to variation andchange in historical English grammar and lexicon. Of the twelve papers inthe collection, half are based on grammar and syntax, half on lexicaldevelopments. The volume highlights the contributions that strong empiricalresearch can make to our knowledge of the development of English grammar,especially as realized in lexical development. In illustration ofcontemporary research trends, the articles in the collection make stronguse of extralinguistic factors to discuss language change as well as arguefor internal and structural development.

The authors are drawn from nine different countries, and each article isfollowed by a commentary and response that provide actual dialogue aboutthe issues in the field, thus representing world-wide discussion of issuesin the history of English. The essays recognize the different audiences forhistorical variation and change - formal linguists, sociolinguists, andlexicographers - and specifically address the interests and discourse inthose areas.

The volume shows how historical studies of English are increasingly engagedwith contemporary trends in linguistics, at the same time as demonstratinghow empirical and other methods can bring classical philology fully intothe sphere of contemporary linguistics without abandoning its traditionalconcerns.
