Studies in Historical Linguistics

Studies in Historical Linguistics brings together work which utilises the comparative method of language study.
Topics include the examination of language change over time, the genetic
classification of language, lexicography, dialectology and etymology.
Pronunciation, lexis, morphology and syntax are examined within the
framework of historical linguistics. Both synchronic and diachronic approaches
are used so that language is examined both at one time and across time.
Historical Linguistics is still a young area of academic study, but it
has its foundations in one of the oldest - philology. This series
recognises both the seminal importance of philology, and the
recent development through the conceptual framework
provided by linguistic science.
Studies in Historical Linguistics
is based at the Department of Media, Culture and Languages at the University of Roehampton.
