西方语言学原版影印系列丛书17:英语语言史社会语言学研究
内容简介
本书旨在尝试以几种不同的观察角度来探讨英语语言的发展轨变。首先,本书的主要章节都以一个大事记列表开始,此表按年代顺序详细给出了在这一阶段发生的与英语语言演变有关的历史事件或社会文化现象;而紧接在年代列表后面的则是“社会历史与政治历史”一节,让读者了解隐于本阶段英语背后决定其演变走向的社会政治环境,为紧接其后关于英语言内部结构变化的讨论做了颇有成效的铺垫。而在各章最后一节“社会语言学特别关注”,则以社会语言学的角度对各章中重要内容进行别开生面的讨论。这种结构安排充分显示出著者为这部英语史所设定的社会语言学基调。此外,作为一部完整的英语史教材,本书还有很多颇具特色的专门为学习者编排的内容。因此,这是一部视角新颖,既有特色又相对完备的英语言史优秀教材。 ·查看全部>>
