Description

Old English was part of a rich linguistic landscape, with multiple varieties and registers of English, in addition to a range of contacts with other languages throughout the Anglo-Saxon period. Often, discussions of multilingualism or linguistic contact in medieval England focus on post-Conquest interactions between English, French, and Latin, but this session considers contacts between Old English and other languages in the pre-Conquest period. Papers will address Latin Mannerism, Welsh/OE contact, and monastic sign language.
