Description

Medievalists by necessity deal with a linguistic barrier, whether their language is Old English, Old French, Middle High German, Medieval Latin, etc. Philologists of the 19th- and early 20th-centuries pioneered the study of these languages, and now linguistic theorists are reexamining them from a socio-historical perspective. Some linguists work on phonology and metrics, some on morphology and syntax, and some on discourse analysis. We will offer a session of papers covering the widest possible assortment of approaches to various medieval languages. Andrew C. Troup
