The seminar will deal with the period from around the end of the 15th century to the end of the 18th century. While the language by the 16th century had reached a recognizably ‘modern’ state, many important linguistic developments, such as the Great Vowel Shift, the rise of the do-paraphrase, the emergence of the full modal system or lexica borrowing, were still going on. This was also the time of standardization, visible most obviously in a host of publications on the English language, in particular dictionaries and grammars. In this course, we will chart the major developments, by analyzing contemporary texts and metalinguistic works.
