Abstract:

Languages change and they keep changing as a result of communicative
interactions and practices in the context of communities of language users.
The articles in this volume showcase a range of such communities and their
practices as loci of language change in the history of English. The notion of
communities of practice takes its starting point in the work of Jean Lave and
Etienne Wenger and refers to groups of people defined both through their
membership in a community and through their shared practices. Three types of
communities are particularly highlighted: networks of letter writers; groups
of scribes and printers; and other groups of professionals, in particular
administrators and scientists. In these diverse contexts in England, Scotland,
the United States and South Africa, language change is not seen as an abstract
process but as a response to the communicative needs and practices of groups
of people engaged in interaction.
