Description

The Mouton Interactive Introduction to Historical Linguistics of English allows you to explore the fascinating linguistic development of English in an unprecedented way: - Audio readings of core historical texts, - multimedia visualizations of central processes of language change, and - rich illustrations of the socio-historical background turn the journey from the linguistic past to the present into a rich and immediate multimodal experience. The story of English is told from three parallel perspectives: - the socio-cultural contexts that shaped its development and sociolinguistic status, - the linguistic changes that transformed its structure and use, - the general process of language change that underlie them. The many links between these strands enable the user to - explore historical linguistics of English by taking an individual route, - create her/his own network of knowledge, - approach the contents from different angles.show more
