Studies in Early Middle English Loanwords: Norse and French Influences

Skaffari Janne

Janne Skaffari's exploration of medieval language contacts focuses on the impact of the Viking and Norman invasions on the English language of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The book first provides background information on post-Conquest society, culture and language, and then presents a contact linguistic framework and a description of research methods. The attestations, uses and statuses of Norse-derived and French-derived words in a broad set of early Middle English texts are subsequently discussed at length.
