A Structural History of English.
Nist, John
This book combines a traditional history-of-the-language approach with modern linguistic analysis to discuss the history of English from Old English through Middle English, Early Modern English, Authoritarian English, Mature Modern English, to American English. The book begins with a discussion of the present status and structure of English. Each stage of development is considered first within historical context and second from a structural viewpoint in terms of phonology, morphology, syntax, and formal stylistics. Each chapter includes a bibliography of relevant material and a set of questions for research and discussion. (VM)
