Historical Linguistics : An Introduction - 98 edition

Historical Linguistics : An Introduction (ISBN10: 0262531593; ISBN13: 9780262531597)
ISBN13: 978-0262531597
ISBN10: 0262531593

Summary: Historical linguistics is the study of how and why language changes--both the methods of investigating language change and the theories designed to explain these changes. This highly accessible introductory text takes a hands-on, how-to approach, rather than just talking about the subject as many texts do. The book contains abundant examples both from familiar European languages, to make the topics accessible, and from a variety of non-European languages, to illustra
te the depth and range of the concepts. The book also covers a number of essential topics neglected by most texts, including syntactic change, methods for investigating distant genetic relationship, linguistic prehistory, and grammaticalization.
