By Richard M. Hogg, Linda van Bergen (Eds.)

The 12th foreign convention on ancient Linguistics, that's the key discussion board for the presentation of labor in development within the box of diachronic linguistics, happened on the college of Manchester in August 1995. the standard and breadth of the abstracts submitted for the final programme was once such that 4 parallel classes have been wanted during the convention. the current quantity includes chosen papers which take care of the Germanic languages. A better half quantity, edited via J.C. Smith and Delia Bentley, comprises papers on normal difficulties in ancient linguistics and reviews of non-Germanic languages. The convention mirrored the present overall healthiness of diachronic linguistics. there have been extra papers and extra members than at earlier meetings, and the dialogue coated a broader variety of languages than hitherto.
Sometimes it's been attainable to isolate a specific preoccupation which has ruled a lot of the convention; however the total impact to be won from the Manchester assembly was once one in every of stimulating range — the self-discipline seems to be relocating ahead on many fronts concurrently, but with no wasting concentration. This stimulating range is easily mirrored during this very important collection.
