Abstract:

The volume brings together seventeen peer-reviewed, revised papers originallypresented at the 16th International Conference on English HistoricalLinguistics (ICEHL 16), held in August 2010 at the University of Pécs,Hungary. This selection aims to show how theoretical and empirical approachescan be combined in the historical investigation of the English language, whatinsights and exact information can be obtained about language change in thehistory of English with the help of tools like historical corpora or withinter- and transdisciplinary methods. The volume is arranged around fivethematic headings. The first discusses dialects and regional variation fromthe viewpoint of contact linguistics and phonological, morphological, andlexical change. The second has syntactic variation and grammaticalization asits focus. Papers on grammatical changes in nominal and pronominalconstructions are presented in part three. The integration of loanwords inMiddle English is discussed in part four, and the last investigatescommunicative intentions in historical discourse.

The volume should appeal to linguists interested in historical aspects ofdialect and discourse studies, historical pragmatics, contact linguistics,grammaticalization theory, corpus linguistics, and of course language change.
