NEW PERSPECTIVES ON ENGLISH HISTORICAL LINGUISTICS II -- Editorial page -- Title page -- LCC page -- Table of contents -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- Reference -- Chancery Standard -- References -- Cant and slang dictionaries -- References -- DOST -- References -- Image schemata and light -- References -- Loanword etymologies in the third edition of the OED -- References -- "Non olet" -- References -- Intrusive [h] in present-day English accents and (h)-insertion in medieval manuscripts -- References -- Mergers, near-mergers and phonological interpretation -- References -- New light on the verb "understand" -- References -- Homophones and the stabilization of orthography in nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century English -- References -- Kailyard, conservatism and Scots in the Statistical Accounts of Scotland -- References -- Sources -- A sociolinguistic approach to the Norse-derived words in the glosses to the Lindisfarne and Rushworth Gospels -- References -- Haplology in English adverb-formation -- References -- Uses of Scottish place-names as evidence in historical dictionaries -- References -- On the stressing of French loanwords in English -- References -- Like like love -- Abbreviations -- References -- Spirantisation and despirantisation -- References -- Subject index -- The Current Issues in Linguistic Theory series.
Summary: This is the second of two volumes of papers selected from those given at the 12th International Conference on English Historical Linguistics. The first is New Perspectives on English Historical Linguistics (1): Syntax and Morphology. Together the volumes provide an overview of many of the issues that are currently engaging practitioners in the field. In this volume, the primary concern is with the historical study of the English lexicon and its sound and writing systems. Using research tools such as machine-readable text and lexical corpora, and intellectual tools such as corpus and cognitive linguistics, many of the papers move from a close study of a set of data to conclusions of theoretical significance, often concerning questions of classification and organisation. More broadly, whether concerned with lexicology or transmission, the papers have a social orientation, since neither lexicology nor phonology can be seen as divorced from its social setting.
