This accessible overview covers all the basic linguistic elements of Old English, including nouns, adjectives, verbs, syntax, word order, and vocabulary. Offering a unique study of Old English in context, it combines a wide variety of short texts with an up-to-date assessment of the forms of language that remain as the foundation of English today. Comparisons are drawn between Old and present-day English and also with other related languages such as Dutch, German, and French. Old English poetry and dialect variation are also discussed.

Richard Hogg is at University of Manchester.

Review Text

  • By Joan Allsopp on 18 January 2014

    Any student taking up this book would benefit from a knowledge of Latin or German declensions systems. Not too taxing.
