Abstract:

This volume provides both a quantitative statistical and qualitative analysis
of Late Northumbrian verbal morphosyntax as recorded in the Old English
interlinear gloss to the Lindisfarne Gospels. It focuses in particular on the
attestation of the subject type and adjacency constraints that characterise
the so-called Northern Subject Rule concord system. The study presents new
evidence which challenges the traditional Early Middle English dating
attributed to the emergence of subject-type concord in the North of England
and demonstrates that the syntactic configuration of the Northern Subject Rule
was already a feature of Old English. By setting the Northumbrian developments
within a broad framework of diachronic and diatopic variation, in which
manifestations of subject-type concord are explored in a wide range of
varieties of English, the author argues that a concord system based on subject
type rather than person/number features is in fact a far less local and more
universal tendency in English than previously believed.
