9780748615247: An Introduction to Early Modern English (Edinburgh Textbooks on the English Language)

An introduction to Early Modern English, this book helps students of English and linguistics to place the language of the period 1500-1700 in its historical context as a language with a common core but also as one which varies across time, regionally and socially, and according to register. The volume focuses on the structure of what contemporaries called the General Dialect - its spelling, vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation - and on its dialectal origins. The book also discusses the language situation and linguistic anxieties in England at a time when Latin exerted a strong influence on the rising standard language.

About the Author:


Terttu Nevalainen is Professor of English Philology at the University of Helsinki, and has taught the history of English in Finland and in England. She is currently the director of the Research Unit for Variation and Change in English and takes an active interest in developing electronic text corpora for linguistic research.

Review:


"She writes in a clear, accessible manner, reflecting hands-on experience as a teacher, while also being a scholar with fresh insights to offer from her cutting-edge corpus-based research into early English, research which is effecting a much-needed corrective shift away from the traditional literature bias among historians of English toward non-canonical and previously unexamined vernacular texts." --Linguist List
