This practical and informative course book leads the student through the development of the language from Old English, through Middle and Early Modern English to the establishment of Standard English in the eighteenth century. This third edition has been expanded to provide more guidance and background information for students. New sections have also been added to outline the development of writing hands and provide a brief introduction to palaeography. The book also now has a fully integrated supplemental website.
