Product Description:

The standard work on the history of the English language, written primarily for university students.

From the Back Cover:

Comprehensive and balanced, this classic exploration of the history of the English language combines internal linguistic history and external cultural history-from the Middle Ages to the present. This market-leading text encourages readers to develop both an understanding of present-day English and an enlightened attitude toward questions affecting the language today.

Features in the New Edition include:
  • A thoroughly revised and updated Chapter 1, English Present and Future, reflecting the latest trends and statistics of the last ten years
  • A new section in Chapter 10, Gender Issues and Linguistic Change, providing a balanced and current perspective on an important social topic
  • Thorough revision of Chapter 11, The English Language in America, with updated material on African American Vernacular English
The traditional strengths of the text remain, including:
  • An emphasis on the political, social, and cultural forces that affect language
  • The use of traditional phonetic notation to help pronunciation
  • A map of American dialects and examples of twentieth-century vocabulary demonstrating differences in American English and comparisons of current English to earlier versions
