Abstract:

The present study examines the diffusion of three linguistic variables in
Early Middle English with special focus on the East versus West Midlands
divide, namely the reduction from four to three stems in the gradation of
strong verbs, variation between Middle English and and the decline of the dual
forms of the personal pronoun. The data is retrieved from version 2.1 of the
corpus of tagged texts of the Linguistic Atlas of Early Middle English (LAEME)
(Laing and Lass 2008–), in which two thirds of the 167 semi-diplomatically
transcribed corpus files are localized, permitting innovative approaches to
Early Middle English dialectology, such as investigations into spatial
diffusion phenomena. The present study offers suggestions as to how modern
diffusion models can be adjusted and applied to historical data. It also
discusses the usability of LAEME for this specific purpose and develops a set
of plausible hypotheses on spatial diffusion patterns in Early Middle English.
At the same time, the study addresses the main issues of studying medieval
manuscripts and of working with historical corpora, and it illustrates how
maps prove to be a useful tool in the visual representation of linguistic
change across time and space.
