Thaisen, Jacob – International Journal of English Studies, 2020
The three scribes of a mid-seventeenth-century collection of medical recipes resemble each other in how they have punctuated the recipes, although they did not work simultaneously. They draw on similar repertoires of marks and they mark similar functions, but they do not use the same marks for the same functions. The principal function is the…

Ruano-García, Javier – International Journal of English Studies, 2020
This paper explores the other side of standardization by looking at one of the early modern regional varieties of English that remained outside the "consensus dialect" (Wright, 2000: 6).

This paper is about identifying a nuance of social meaning which, I demonstrate, was conveyed in the Early and Late Modern period by the suffix "-oon."

Most children-based research has focused primarily on Negotiation of Meaning, while other age-related aspects,…
