Edinburgh Historical Linguistics

Series Editor(s): Joseph Salmons, David Willis

A series of advanced textbooks which cover key subfields within historical linguistics

The series provides a comprehensive introduction to this broad and increasingly complex field. Aimed at advanced undergraduates in linguistics, as well as beginning postgraduates who are looking for an entry point, volumes are discursive, accessible and responsive to critical developments in the field.

Individual volumes show historical linguistics as a field anchored in two centuries of research, with a rich empirical base and theoretical perspectives, and one tied tightly to all areas of linguistics. Fundamentally, though, the series shows how historical linguists approach language change. Every volume contains pedagogical features such as recommendations for further reading, but the tone of each volume is discursive, explanatory and critically engaged, rather than ‘activity-based’.
