History of English


Convenor: Dr David Willis

In this seminar, we will look at topics in the syntax of Old and Middle English, examining both how linguists have developed formal analyses of syntactic change during the period and how textual evidence can be used to establish the pathways that change has taken. We will look at both primary texts and articles on such topics as auxiliaries, word order, negation and the noun phrase.
