Recording English, researching English, transforming English : with the assistance of Veronika Traidl by Hans Sauer( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents new research results in English historical linguistics. Section I deals with sounds and spellings, e.g. the role of writing in language change, Pre-Old English sound changes and their reflection in runic inscriptions - plus the first complete list of OE runic inscriptions - and with velar fricatives in Middle English. Section II contains studies on words and phrases (e.g. the OE terms for the chain-mail coat), shell nouns, and secondary agent constructions. Section III highlights the developments of because, relative clauses, impersonal and passive constructions. Section IV analyzes the role of dialects in literature (e.g. 16th and 18th centuries). Section V sheds light on the use of early literature by later authors (e.g. J.R.R. Tolkien) and on Chinese translations of Beowulf

Binomials in the history of English : fixed and flexible by Joanna Kopaczyk( )

16 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Binomials, such as for and against, dead or alive, to have and to hold, can be broadly defined as two words belonging to the same grammatical category and linked by a semantic relationship. They are an important phraseological phenomenon present throughout the history of the English language. This volume offers a range of studies on binomials, their types and functions from Old English through to the present day. Searching for motivations and characteristic features of binomials in a particular genre or writer, the chapters engage with many linguistic levels of analysis, such as phonology or semantics, and explore the important role of translation. Drawing on philological and corpus-linguistic approaches, the authors employ qualitative and quantitative methods, setting the discussion firmly in the extra-linguistic context. Binomials and their extended forms, multinomials, emerge from these discussions as an important phraseological tool, with rich applications and complex motivations"--

Aspects of Medieval English language and literature : proceedings of the Fifth International Conference of the Society of Historical English Language and Linguistics by Jacek Fisiak( Book )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of papers read at the International Medieval Congress at Leeds in 2017, in two sessions organized by the Institute of English Studies at the University of London and four sessions organized by the Society of Historical English Language and Linguistics. Contributions consist of poetry, prose, interlinear glosses, syntax, semantics, lexicology, and medievalism. The contributors employ a wealth of different approaches. The general theme of the IMC 2017 was 'otherness', and some papers fit this theme very well. Even when two researchers deal with a similar topic and arrive at different conclusions, the editors do not try to harmonize them but present them as they are for further discussion

Words, texts and genres by International Conference on English Historical Linguistics( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifteen papers selected for Volume II of English Historical Linguistics 2008 have a different emphasis than those in Volume I (CILT 314, Lenker et al. 2010). Nine concentrate on the development of the English vocabulary and six on historical text linguistics, including the development of text-types and of politeness strategies. Of those in the former group, three have their emphasis on etymology, three on semantic fields, and three on word-formation, although some cover more than one of these areas. The topics include: the treatment of etymological problems in the OED; deverb

My first door to English linguistics a short companion to the study of English by Hans Sauer( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a brief and reader-friendly introduction to English linguistics. After a short survey of the history of linguistics, it deals with the main levels of spoken and written language, namely with phonetics and phonology, spelling and orthography, morphology (especially inflectional morphology), syntax, lexicology and lexicography (especially semantics, word-formation, idioms, and dictionaries). It moves on to text linguistics, pragmatics, standard and varieties, highlighting especially some of the main differences between British and American English. A sketch of the history of English is also provided: Indo-European, Germanic, Old and Middle English, Early Modern and Modern English. The book concludes with a brief introduction to historical linguistics, a chapter on contrastive aspects (comparing some features of English and German), and suggestions for further reading. The appendix lists the phonetic symbols for English; it also gives a few examples of dictionary entries.0"My First Door to English Linguistics" is intended for everybody interested in linguistics in general and in English linguistics in particular. It is mainly addressed to students of English who take an introductory course in linguistics; but the authors hope that it is also useful to exam candidates for a quick revision of the basic linguistic terms and concepts
