Empirical and Analytical Advances in the Study of English Language Change
continues the project of initiating and energizing the conversations among
historians of the English language fostered by the series of conferences on
studying the history of the English language (SHEL), begun in 2000 at UCLA.
It follows in the footsteps of three high-profile SHEL-based collections of
peer-reviewed research papers and point-counterpoint commentaries.
In the current volume, the editors invited contributors to reflect upon
their approaches and practices in undertaking historical studies, focusing
particularly on the methods deployed in selecting and analyzing data. The
essays in this volume represent interests in the study of linguistic change
in English that range across different periods, genres, and aspects of the
language and show different approaches and use of evidence to deal with the
subject. They also represent the current state of research in the field and
the nature of the debates in which scholars and historians engage as
regards the nature of the evidence adduced in the explanation of change and
the robustness of heuristics.
The editors share a strong interest in examining the evidence that informs
and grounds research in their fields at the same time as interrogating the
heuristics employed by their colleagues for the histories they present. The
contributions to the volume give expression to these interests.
Contributors are: Richard Hogg (to whose memory the volume is dedicated),
William Labov, Elizabeth Traugott, Rob Fulk, Thomas Cable, Jennifer
Tran-Smith, Charles Li, Christina Fitzgerald, David Denison, Christopher
Palmer, Don Chapman, Graeme Trousdale, Joan Beal, Connie Eble, Stefan
Dollinger and Raymond Hickey.
The volume is of interest to scholars and postgraduate and research
students in the history of English, English philology, and (English)
