The Cambridge History of the English Language is the first multi-volume work to provide a full and authoritative account of the history of English. Each chapter gives a chronologically-oriented presentation of the data, surveys scholarship in the area and takes full account of the impact of current and developing linguistic theory on the interpretation of the data. The chapters have been written so as to be accessible to both specialists and nonspecialists and each volume contains a glossary of linguistic terms and a comprehensive bibliography and index.
