The Cambridge History of the English Language is the first multi-volume work to provide a full and authoritative account of the history of English. This volume deals with the history of English up to the Norman conquest. Each chapter gives a chronologically-oriented presentation of the data, surveys scholarship in the area and takes full account of the impact of developing and current linguistic theory on the interpretation of the data. The chapters have been written so as to be accessible both to specialists and nonspecialists, and have been carefully edited by Profesor Hogg to create an integrated approach. This will be essential reading for all those interested in the history of the English language.Contents1. Introduction - Richard M. Hogg2.

The latter will find polished theoretical setpieces that are carefully justified."--Journal of English and Germanic Philology"As it stands, the work is a monument of erudition, patently digested for the layman. If the same level of proficiency is maintained throughout the other volumes, this book will probably become the standard History of the English language for years to come."--Journal of Indo-European Studies
