The purpose of this book is to give an outline of structural features of Chaucer's poetic syntax that are relevant to the study of style, and to define some general tendencies in his construction of sentences. What emerges is a fondness on Chaucer's part for discontinuity in the order of words and phrases and for certain forms of expression which have a wider application t:han their modern counterparts. In order that Chaucer's usage may be seen in its historical context, comparative material is drawn from the writings of his contemporaries - Langland, Gower, and the l>Gawainl>-poet - and from the body of early English rhyming romances now taken to represent an influent:ial native poetic tradition. I In an introductory chapter Dr Roscow questions the familiar description of Chaucer's syntax as colloquial, and argues for attention to a wider range of literary functions in studying the relationship between syntax and style in nedieval poetry

Originally published in 1940, this book was written in 'an attempt to drive a few main lines through the almost unexplored tract of Old English syntax'. The text also reaches important conclusions regarding the characteristic features of Old English style and its close relationship with syntactical elements, both in prose and verse. Reference is frequently made to the 'traditional text' of Beowulf. That is to say, the text as it was usually punctuated by editors at the time of publication. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Old English and linguistics.

Recent developments in neurophysiology have reshaped our vision of reading. For years, semantics and content remained, almost exclusively, in the zone of linguistics. But new research shows that, as we run our eyes through the text, our cultural background and life experience switch on certain areas in the brain that allow the reader to perceive the content not only semantically but also 'phonetically'. The holistic auditory effect of reading is crucial for understanding and is based on the dynamic contextual prominence of words. Some parts of the text are foregrounded by means of style and syntax and have a clear dynamic auditory image, other parts are relegated to the background and form the basis of the art of declamation. The aural canvases of timbre formed by the foregrounded peaks of the auditory perception form a new vision of the narrated reality that may revolutionize our views of how we understand the written content. This book reveals the formerly hidden aspects of many familiar texts, including those written hundreds of years ago. It may serve as a supplement to the regular courses of stylistics and rhetoric in language schools, universities and courses of language development.

The present book provides the most comprehensive account so far of gender differences in syntax. It is an in-depth corpus-based study of syntactic variation in the use of adverbial clauses and tag questions. Written in a broadly functional framework, it pays due attention to the interaction of gender with other internal (semantics, syntax, prosody) and external (style, power, surreptitiousness, group composition) determinants. This volume is essential reading for those interested in language and gender and in how functionalism can be brought to bear in illuminating language structure and use.
