Abstract:

The history of English writing is, to a considerable extent, the history of
instructional writing in English. This volume is the first collection of
papers to focus on instructional writing throughout the history of the
language. Spanning a millennium of English texts, the materials studied
represent procedural and behavioural discourse in a variety of genres. The
primary texts, from Ælfric's homilies to medieval cooking recipes to
seventeenth-century American conduct literature to present-day language
textbooks, display a variety of linguistic devices typical of instruction.
The materials nonetheless differ with respect to the explicitness of their
instructive purpose. Bringing together a broad range of instructional
writing from the Old, Middle and Modern English periods, this collection
celebrates the sixtieth birthday of Risto Hiltunen, who has successfully
combined discourse-linguistic approaches with the history of English in his
research, and inspired the colleagues and former students contributing to
this volume.
