London: Routledge, Nevalainen, Terttu () Women's Writings as Evidence for Linguistic Continuity and Change in Early Modern English. In Richard Watts and Peter Trudgill (eds).

Some of the main influences on the evolution of. The book introduces the reader to the central areas of English linguistics. The main sections are: the English language and linguistics - sounds - meaning-carrying units - sentences: models of grammar - meaning - utterances - variation.
