Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 50
Description:

This book brings together a variety of approaches to English corpus linguistics
and shows how corpus methodologies can contribute to the linking of diachronic
and synchronic studies. The articles in this volume investigate historical
changes in the English language as well as specific aspects of Middle and
Modern English and, moreover, of English dialects. The contributions also
discuss the development of English corpus linguistics generally and its potential
in the future. Special focus is given to the continuity between Middle and
Modern English – much in line with the linking in previous studies of Middle
English and Old English under the generic term “medievalism”. This volume
highlights the continual development of English from the medieval to modern
period.
