Description
 
Demonstrates that an understanding of Chaucerís social, cultural, and literary world is vital to our understanding of his language and meaning. In the first part of the book, David Burnley draws upon modern linguistics and concentrates on the texts and various approaches to interpreting the poetís grammar and syntax. The second part treats Chaucerís language and vocabulary in its broader contemporary context, dealing with language use, style, and variety and culminating in a provocative chapter on the ďarchitectureĒ of Chaucerís language. ďAn enormously useful study for historians of the English language, especially for its relevance to 14th-century English, as well as to medievalists in general.Ē Illustrations.
