The Handbook of the History of English is a collection of articles written by leading specialists in the field that focus on the theoretical issues behind the facts of the changing English language. The innovative organization of this volume applies recent insights to old problems, and surveys the history of English from the perspective of structural developments in areas such as phonology, Posody morphology, syntax, semantics, language variation, and dialectology.

This unique handbook offers readers a comprehensive overview of the various theoretical perspectives available to the study of the history of English and sets new objectives for further research.
