An introduction to early Modern English by Terttu Nevalainen( )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comprehensive introduction to a key period in the development of English. 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
Types of variation : diachronic, dialectical and typological interfaces by Terttu Nevalainen( )

23 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume interfaces three fields of linguistics rarely discussed in the same context. Its underlying theme is linguistic variation, and the ways in which historical linguists and dialectologists may learn from insights offered by typology, and <i>vice versa</i>. The aim of the contributions is to raise the<b> </b>awareness of these linguistic subdisciplines of each other and to encourage their cross-fertilization to their mutual benefit. <br />If linguistic typology is to unify the study of <i>all</i> types of linguistic variation, this variation, both diatopic and diachronic, will enrich t
The dynamics of linguistic variation : corpus evidence on English past and present by International ICAME Conference( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variability is characteristic of any living language. This volume approaches the 'life cycle' of linguistic variability in English using data sources that range from electronic corpora to the internet. In the spirit of the 1968 Weinreich, Labov and Herzog classic, the fifteen contributions divide into three sections, each highlighting different stages in the dynamics of English across time and space. They show, first, how increase in variability can be initiated by processes that give rise to new patterns of discourse, which can ultimately crystallize into new grammatical elements. The next ph
Letter writing by Terttu Nevalainen( )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions in this book discuss letter-writing from 1400 to 1800, and the material studied ranges from the late medieval Paston Letters and the correspondence between Sweden and the German Hanse to Early Modern English family letters and correspondence in natural history between England and North America in the eighteenth century. By bringing a set of corpus linguistic, discourse analytic, pragmatic and sociolinguistic approaches to bear on historical letter-writing activity, the articles both extend and complement the traditional letter-writing research in the history of European langu
Historical sociolinguistics : language change in Tudor and Stuart England by Terttu Nevalainen( Book )

34 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historical Sociolinguistics: Language Change in Tudor and Stuart England is the seminal text in the field of historical sociolinguistics. Demonstrating the real-world application of sociolinguistic research methodologies, this book examines the social factors which promoted linguistic changes in English, laying the foundation for Modern Standard English. This revised edition of Nevalainen and Raumolin-Brunberg's ground-breaking work: - discusses the grammatical developments that shaped English in the early modern period; - presents the sociolinguistic factors affecting linguistic change in Tudor and Stuart English, including gender, social status, and regional variation; - showcases the authors' research into personal letters from the people who were the driving force behind these changes; and - demonstrates how historical linguists can make use of social and demographic history to analyse linguistic variation over an extended period of time. With brand new chapters on language change and the individual, and on newly developed sociolinguistic research methods, Historical Sociolinguistics is essential reading for all students and researchers in this area

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patterns of change in 18th-century English : a sociolinguistic approach( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eighteenth-century English is often associated with normative grammar. But to what extent did prescriptivism impact ongoing processes of linguistic change? The authors of this volume examine a variety of linguistic changes in a corpus of personal correspondence, including the auxiliary do, verbal -s and the progressive aspect, and they conclude that direct normative influence on them must have been minimal. The studies are contextualized by discussions of the normative tradition and the correspondence corpus, and of eighteenth-century English society and culture. Basing their work on a variationist sociolinguistic approach, the authors introduce the models and methods they have used to trace the progress of linguistic changes in the "long" eighteenth century, 1680-1800. Aggregate findings are balanced by analysing individuals and their varying participation in these processes. The final chapter places these results in a wider context and considers them in relation to past sociolinguistic work. One of the major findings of the studies is that in most cases the overall pace of change was slow. Factors retarding change include speaker evaluation and repurposing outgoing features, in particular, for certain styles and registers"--
