The Nordic Languages: An International Handbook of the History of the North Germanic Languages, Volume 2

Front Cover
Oskar Bandle, Kurt Braunmüller, Lennart Elmevik, Ernst Hakon Jahr, Gun Widmark, Hans-Peter Naumann, Allan Karker, Ulf Teleman
Walter de Gruyter, 2002 - 2208 pages
The handbook is not tied to a particular methodology but keeps in principle to a pronounced methodological pluralism, encompassing all aspects of actual methodology. Moreover it combines diachronic with synchronic-systematic aspects, longitudinal sections with cross-sections (periods such as Old Norse, transition from Old Norse to Early Modern Nordic, Early Modern Nordic 1550-1800 and so on). The description of Nordic language history is built upon a comprehensive collection of linguistic data; it consists of more than 200 articles written by a multitude of authors from Scandinavian and German and English speaking countries. The organization of the book combines a central part on the detailed chronological developments and some chapters of a more general character: chapters on theory and methodology in the beginning and on overlapping spatio-temporal topics in the end.
