About this product
- DescriptionThis book is a corpus-based study which aims to describe the class of self-prouns as used in the Early Modern English period. Self-prouns are presented as a multi-functional class, with two main functions, as emphatic forms and as reflexive markers. The emphatic function is seen as a continuation of an earlier state of affairs, whereas the reflexive function is described as a new, emerging one. As reflexive markers, self-prouns in Early Modern English compete with personal prouns. Therefore the book seeks to present the conditions of their distribution ranging from configurational and thematic through discursive to pragmatic factors involved in the choice of the reflexive strategy.
- Author BiographyEwa Kucelman is Research Assistant of West-Germanic Linguistics at the Pedagogical University of Cracow (Poland).
