Aims and Scope
The relationships among data, evidence, and methodology in English historical linguistics are perennially vexed. This volume– which ranges chronologically from Old to Present-Day English and from manuscripts to corpora– challenges a wide variety of assumptions and practices and illustrates how diverse methods and approaches construct evidence for historical linguistic arguments from an increasingly large and diverse body of linguistic data.
