    Overview

  • Comprehensive coverage of the history of English and of major varieties of English
  • Synopsis of current research into key questions and debates in English historical linguistics
  • Individual chapters written by leading authorities in the field
  • Aims and Scope

    The volume provides a wide-ranging account of Middle English, organized by linguistic level. Not only are the traditional areas of linguistic study explored in state-of-the-art chapters, but the volume also covers less traditional areas of study, including creolization, sociolinguistics, literary language (including the language of Chaucer), pragmatics and discourse, dialectology, standardization, language contact, and multilingualism.
