Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this lecture we shall look at the different forms which English has taken over time. We shall develop and practice methods for analysing and interpreting earlier English texts, for reconstructing properties of earlier Englishes, and for describing and explaining the changes that have given Present Day English its shape. Some of the questions raised will be: why is there so little correspondence between English spelling and pronunciation? Why are there hardly any inflectional endings in Modern English? Why are not all verbs regular?
