This emphasis on the place of Old English in the history of the language as a whole offers a unique study of Old English in context. Topics covered include: nouns and adjectives; verbs; syntax; word order; vocabulary; literary language; and dialectal variation. The book concludes with a discussion of subsequent changes in the history of English which can be detected in the Old English period.
