Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available in a completely revised edition, this book describes the English language between the years 1500 and 1700--the different varieties of the language, the attitudes of its speakers towards it, its pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar. It will be useful to serious students of the history of English and takes full account of those readers who are mainly interested in the literature of the period by providing plenty of references to literary works and authors.

Synopsis:

This book describes the transformation of the English language between the years 1500 and 1700 — the different varieties of the language, the attitudes of its speakers towards it, its pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. It is an invaluable tool for students of the history of English, as well as an accessible and enlightening survey for anyone interested in the English language.

Originally published in 1976, this new edition is substantially revised and includes: modernized phonetic notation; separate grammar sections on morphology and syntax; updated bibliography; list of additional texts for study; additional references to literary works and authors; chapters rearranged for more logical procession.
