Viereck taught English philology at the U. of Graz, Austria, from 1973 to 1978 before assuming the Chair of English Linguistics and Medieval Studies at the U. of Bamberg. His recent retirement from the U. of Bamberg is being marked by the publication of two volumes of selected writings spanning a period of 40 years. This first volume contains 22 papers centered around English linguistics and cultural history as well as English dialectology. One essay appears in German, one in French, and the remainder in English, with topics ranging from the dissemination of early (insular) manuscripts on the European continent and Celtic-English linguistic contact to selected features of English dialectal variation. For dialectologists and English language historians. No subject index.
