This volume focuses on the present state of English historical linguistics as a unitary discipline. In particular, the selection of papers challenges the idea that the community of linguists working on the history of English stands united merely by subject matter, but divided by method and theoretical outlook. The volume is organised in four main sections: Syntax. - Phonology. - Text types. - Sociolinguistics and dialectology.
