Abstract:

For a good orientation into the history of English grammar, several books are
indispensable. One of those is Mustanoja’s A Middle English Syntax. However,
for a long time this work was not readily available; the present edition
changes that. This is a fac simile reprint from the 1960 publication which
appeared as volume XXIII in ‘Mémoires de la Société Néophilologique de
Helsinki’, with a new Introduction by Elly van Gelderen.

Compared to Old English, Middle English has fewer grammars and textbooks
devoted to it. This book provides an interesting supplement by going deeper
into certain questions and, especially, into exceptions. The book points out
differences with Old English and certain peculiarities of the Middle English
system. It was originally written for students of Middle English literature
but serves a linguist well in detailed descriptions of the parts of speech,
the use of the various cases, gender, and number. Word order, complex
sentences, and conjunctions were meant to be dealt with in a second volume,
which was never published.
