Middle English from Tongue to Text: Selected Papers from the Third International Conference on Middle English: Language and Text, Held at Dublin, Ireland, 1-4 July 1999 by Peter Lang AG (Paperback, 2002)
The papers in this book cover an impressive range of research into all aspects of the study of Middle English Language and Texts, hence the title From Tongue to Text. The topics dealt with are arranged according to this spectrum of approach, beginning with spelling evidence (which may tell us something about sounds), and moving forward through phology, sound symbolism, morphology, syntax, discourse analysis, and vocabulary, to the study of dialects, Middle English in contact with other languages, and to text explication. The authors come from all parts of Europe, rth, south, east and west, and from Japan, and originally came together at the Third International Conference on Middle English at Dublin, Ireland, in July 1999, where they contributed with others to the theme of Language and Text.
