An Introduction to Old English is an accessible overview of the first centuries in the history of the English language. It combines a wide variety of short texts with a coherent and up-to-date assessment of the forms of language which remain as the foundation of English today, offering a unique study of Old English in context. It is designed for students unfamiliar with the earliest stages of the English language and provides a basis for further study of the history of the language to the present day. All the basic elements of Old English are covered, including nouns, adjectives, verbs, syntax, word order and vocabulary. Wherever possible comparisons are drawn between Old English and the present-day language, but also with other related languages such as Dutch, German and French. There are also chapters introducing readers to both Old English poetry and dialect variation as well as a chapter looking at what happened to the language after the Norman Conquest.*

Up-to-date account of the linguistics of the Old English period with particular stress on syntax and vocabulary * Integrates accounts of the language with selected texts graded to improve accessibility for the beginner * Strong emphasis on the relation between Old English and present-day English together with relevant features in related languages * Contains exercises, a glossary of key terms and an Old English glossary

Oi! 9. April 2006
Von bibliomaniac - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I do not write many reviews, but thought I should respond to a few comments of the other reviewer. First, Hogg's book was written before the DNA studies were published, and second as a book on LANGUAGE, ethnicity has very little to do with linguistics and language, so discussions of the DNA studies or when the "Saxons" settled in England is all really beside the point. Second, there is no evidence that Saxons were in service to the Romans. There is evidence that Germanic settlers were coming to Britain in the fourth century and that to do so would have had least local Roman permission and knowledge, but that isn't the same as being in service to Rome. Finally, the whole notion that England is descended from one of the lost tribes of Israel (or from Aeneas and the Trojans for that matter) are pseudo-historical claims that were made AFTER the Old English period and so not of any interest to a book on the Old English language.

This is a fine Old English grammar and good reference book that has been well received.

Terrible 11. Dezember 2006
Von Cord M. Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have studied a number of languages and used a number of text books for this purpose. This book is almost certainly the worst. It is nearly useless to anyone who does not have a strong background in linguistics and comparative grammatical theory. Hogg somehow manages to obfuscate the explanations of even the simplest grammatical concepts.

About what it says about when the Saxons first came to England 30. Januar 2006
Von Bill C. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Sometime before 2000 archaeologista and or historians showed that the Saxons actually started in Roman Britain just BEFORE the Romans pulled out. THe saxons were actually in the service of the Roman army. Yet Hogg never mentions that when he discusses Angle ans Saxon settlement of Britain he appears to believe that the Saxons came to Britain only after the Romans pulled in AD 407. Also, it doesn't look as if Hogg mentions any of the DNA studies by Luigui Cavalli-Sforza that shows how close genetically English are to pretty much above all the Dutch. Hogg does mention the English language's close affinity to the Frisian and Dutch lanhguages though. As a side note the English used to believe they were directly descended from one of the Lost Jewish tribes of Israel (the English aren't actually they are only neolithically Syrian as DNA studies by scientist Spencer Wells showed). It would have been interesting if Hogg had put some comparisons between old Enlish and Jewish and other Syrian languages and mentioned this now disproven theory.
