Abstract:

Changing English examines the history of English from its origins in the
fifth century to the present day. It focuses on the radical changes that
have taken place in the structure of English over a millennium and a half,
detailing the influences of migration, colonialism and many other
historical, social and cultural phenomena. Expert authors illustrate and
analyze dialects, accents and the shifting styles of individual speakers as
they respond to changing circumstances. The reader is introduced to many
key debates relating to the English language, illustrated by specific
examples of data in context.

Including key material retained from the earlier bestselling book, English:
History, Diversity and Change, this new book has been thoroughly
reorganised and updated with entirely new material. Changing English:

*explains basic concepts, easily located through a comprehensive index

*includes contributions by experts in the field, such as David Crystal,
David Graddol, Dick Leith, Lynda Mugglestone and Joan Swann

*contains a range of source material and commissioned readings to
supplement chapters.

*Changing English makes an essential contribution to the field of English
language studies.
