"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 Old English" project at the University of Toronto. Hogg and Fulk explore the separation of diachronic and synchronic considerations in the frequently complex analysis of noun morphology. This volume also includes extensive bibliographical coverage of Old English morphology, and consideration of recent controversies in Germanic linguistics, particularly in the treatment of verbs.
"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.
