Communication and the literary production of the Middle Ages were an integral
part of a complex linguistic situation. Latin, the Western European language of
education and administration, stood in contrast to the vernacular languages,
which in turn were divided into different dialects. Different
vernacular languages
often existed in the same geographic area. This anthology approaches this
topic, which has not been systematically covered until now, from an
interdisciplinary perspective. It discusses fundamental methodological issues
and surviving linguistic and literary documents from the 8th up to the 16th
