Papers from the 4th International Conference on Historical Linguistics

edited by Elizabeth Closs Traugott, Rebecca Labrum & Susan Shepherd

The studies in this volume are revised versions of a selection from the papers presented at the Fourth International Conference on Historical Linguistics, held at Stanford University on 26-30 March 1979. Papers at this conference, and in this volume, treat aspects of all current topics in historical linguistics, including topics that are only recently considered relevant, such as acquisition, structure, and language use.
