Abstract:

This collection reflects Minoji Akimoto's concern with studies of change in
English that are theoretically-informed, but founded on substantial bodies
of data. Some of the contributors focus on individual texts and text-types,
among them literature and journalism, others on specific periods, from Old
English to the nineteenth century, but the majority trace a linguistic
process - such as negation, passivisation, complementation or
grammaticalisation - through the history of English. While several papers
take a fresh look at manuscript evidence, the harnessing of wideranging
electronic corpora is a recurring feature methodologically. The linguistic
fields treated include word semantics, stylistics, orthography, word-order,
pragmatics and lexicography. The volume also contains a bibliography of
Professor Akimoto's writings and an index of linguistic terms.
