Abstract:

The history of regional 'Englishes' in the Early Modern period still presents 
numerous lacunae that need to be filled, in order to provide a complete insight 
into the English linguistic setting at this time. This book aims to remedy 
these deficiencies in some measure. In particular, this monograph seeks to 
shed light upon the history of Early Modern Northern English vocabulary by 
means of the first corpus of Early Modern texts where Northern linguistic 
traits are used for literary purposes. It provides a linguistically documented 
description of Northern words from a synchronic standpoint, dealing with their 
distribution, etymology, as well as with some of their morphological and 
semantic characteristics. In addition, this study offers a discussion of the 
Early Modern literary representations of Northern speech. A thorough revision 
of the treatment that Northern lexical items are given in contemporary and 
modern lexicographic sources is also presented, together with a glossary that 
outlines the diachronic profile of the terms gathered. 

Contents: Representations of the North in Early Modern English literature: 
sources for linguistic analysis - The Salamanca Corpus - Lexicographical 
sources for the study of Early Modern northern words: data and problems of 
analysis - Northern and non -northern words used in the literary 
representations of the North - Etymological, morphological and semantic 
characteristics of the words recorded - Quantitative investigation into the 
lexical di alect data of the corpus texts - Lexicological and lexicographical 
potential of the corpus data - Diachronic profile of the words gathered. 

Javier Ruano-García studied English Philology at the University of 
Salamanca, where he graduated in 2003. He completed his MA in English 
linguistics in 2005 with a dissertation on seventeenth-century Lancashire 
English, and received his doctorate from the University of Salamanca three 
years afterwards. Both his MA and his Ph.D. dissertations have been 
awarded the prize for outstanding achievement. He has lectured in the 
English Department of the University of Salamanca since 2008, and is also a 
member of the research project The Salamanca Corpus, headed by Dr. María 
F. García-Bermejo Giner and Dr. Pilar Sánchez-García. His main research 
interests include English diachronic dialectology, literary dialects and dialect 
literature, dialect lexi-cography and lexicology.
