The 21 papers discuss both methods and findings when large bases of text are brought as evidence for changes in the English language. Among the topics are conflicting evidence from psycholinguistic and corpuslinguistic data on stylistic change, productive lexical processes in present-day English, the subjunctive in Early Modern English adverbial clauses, and an atlas of English family names. There is no index.
