Description

Given the turn to sociolinguistic approaches to history of the English language and historical pragmatics approaches to medieval texts, a panel focusing on how specific language issues affect reading and understanding the anchoritic texts could be quite successful. Any topics dealing with the connection between specific language features and the social or pragmatic context of the texts would be welcome—for example, the use of discourse markers, lexicalization or grammaticalization, pronoun usage, narratological issues and stance taking, interpellation/positioning of readers, etc. Michelle M.
