A soci­olin­guis­tic his­to­ry of British Eng­lish lex­i­cog­ra­phy
BuchcoverA Soci­olin­guis­tic His­to­ry of British Eng­lish Lex­i­cog­ra­phy traces the evo­lu­tion of British Eng­lish dic­tio­nar­ies from their ear­li­est roots to the end of the 20th cen­tu­ry by adopt­ing both soci­olin­guis­tic and lex­i­co­graph­i­cal per­spec­tives. It attempts to break out of the lim­its of the dic­tio­nary-ontol­ogy par­a­digm and set British Eng­lish dic­tio­nary-mak­ing and research against a broad­er back­ground of socio-cul­tur­al obser­va­tions, thus relat­ing the devel­op­ment of Eng­lish lex­i­cog­ra­phy to changes in Eng­lish, accom­plish­ments in Eng­lish lin­guis­tics, social and cul­tur­al progress, and advances in sci­ence and tech­nol­o­gy.
It unfolds a vivid, coher­ent and com­plete pic­ture of how Eng­lish dic­tio­nary-mak­ing devel­ops from its arche­type to the pre­scrip­tive, the his­tor­i­cal, the descrip­tive and final­ly to the cog­ni­tive mod­el, how it inter­re­lates to the course of the devel­op­ment of a nation’s cul­ture and the his­tor­i­cal growth of its lex­i­co­graph­i­cal cul­ture, as well as how Eng­lish lex­i­cog­ra­phy spreads from British Eng­lish to oth­er major region­al vari­eties through inher­i­tance, inno­va­tion and self-per­fec­tion.
This vol­ume will be of inter­est to stu­dents and aca­d­e­mics of Eng­lish lex­i­cog­ra­phy, Eng­lish lin­guis­tics and world Eng­lish lex­i­cog­ra­phy.

The Shake­speare­an com­ic and tragi­com­ic: French inflec­tions
BuchcoverIn explor­ing links between the ear­ly mod­ern Eng­lish the­atre and France, Richard Hill­man focus­es on Shakespeare’s deploy­ment of gen­res whose dom­i­nant Ital­ian mod­els and affini­ties might seem to leave lit­tle scope for French ones. The author draws on spe­cif­ic and unsus­pect­ed points of con­tact, whilst also point­ing out a broad ten­den­cy by the drama­tist, to draw on French mate­r­i­al, both dra­mat­ic and non-dra­mat­ic, to inflect com­ic forms in poten­tial­ly trag­ic direc­tions. The result­ing inter­nal ten­sions are evi­dent from the ear­li­est come­dies to the lat­est tragi­come­dies (or ‚romances‘).
While its many orig­i­nal read­ings will inter­est spe­cial­ists and stu­dents of Shake­speare, this book will have broad­er appeal: it con­tributes sig­nif­i­cant­ly, from an unfa­mil­iar angle, to the con­tem­po­rary dis­course con­cerned with ear­ly mod­ern Eng­lish cul­ture with­in the Euro­pean con­text. At the same time, it is acces­si­ble to a wide range of read­ers, with trans­la­tions pro­vid­ed for all non-Eng­lish cita­tions.
