About this Unit
In 2013, this unit replaced by 102043 – Historical Linguistics. The aim of this unit is to familiarise students with the historical development of English from Old English through to the modern varieties of English around the world today. It explores the linguistic and historical influences on English from early times to the present and examines these influences as they reveal themselves in the grammar, phonology and vocabulary of older and modern varieties of English
