An Introductory Grammar of Old English, with an Anthology of Readings
Designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, An Introductory Grammar of Old English presents the orthography, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics of the language chapter by chapter in connection with a series of graduated readings. The grammar accompanies an anthology of further readings that includes sixteen texts in prose and verse, some well known, some less familiar, with extensive commentary and a full glossary. Other features include an index to grammatical topics covered and appendices on sound changes, dialects, and poetic diction and form. A related website offers detailed bibliographical guidance to the study of Old English language and literature.
