Overview


The future of English linguistics as envisaged by the editors of Topics in English Linguistics lies in empirical studies which integrate work in English linguistics into general and theoretical linguistics on the one hand, and comparative linguistics on the other. The TiEL series features volumes that present interesting new data and analyses, and above all fresh approaches that contribute to the overall aim of the series, which is to further outstanding research in English linguistics.

Though contextualization is the unifying theme, the 27 studies define it variously as earlier research, context of culture, context of genres, text types, semantic fields, communications situation and utterance context, or diachronic and diatopic anchoring. Among the topics are language periodization and the concept of middle, normalizing the word forms in the , naming and avoiding naming objects of terror, Chaucer's poetic adaptation of the medieval book curse, and Middle English prosodic innovations and their testability in verse. Most of the contributions are from an international conference held in Hanasaari, Espoo, Finland, in June 1997. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
