Aims and Scope
This study examines the Early New High German prose romance Melusine by Thüring von Ringoltingen to explore the relationship between the practice of printing and language change. Based on a corpus of over 30 print editions of the Melusine (published from 1473/74 to 1692/93), the study analyzes factors favoring variance and consistency in print editions, written language, and changes at the textual level.
