The Earliest English provides a student-friendly introduction to Old English and the earliest periods of the history of the English Language as it evolved before 1215. Using non-technical language, the book covers basic terminology, the linguistic and cultural backgrounds to the emergence and development of OE, and the OE vocabulary that students studying this phase of the English language need to know. In eight carefully structured units, the authors show how the vocabulary of Old English contains many items familiar to us today; how its characteristic poetic form is based on a beautiful and intricate simplicity; how its patterns of word building and inflectional structure are paralleled in several present day languages and how and why the English language and its literature continued to change so that by the mid-12th century the English language looks more like the 'English' that we are familiar with in the 21st century. Features of the book include: the provision of accessible guides to some important 'problem topics' of classical OE stimulating cross-linguistic comparisons, e.g. the pronoun system of OE as compared with the pronoun system of present day Dutch cleverly laid out translation exercises, with structural help in the form of selective glossaries careful division into eight units, designed for both classroom use and self-study Written in a clear and accessible manner, The Earliest English provides a comprehensive introduction to the evolution of Old English language and literature, and will be an invaluable textbook for students of English Language and Linguistics.

The purpose of this general introduction to Old English is not to deal with the teaching of Old English but to dispel some misconceptions about the language and to give an outline of its structure and its literature. Old English tends to be associated with universities and it is, perhaps, because of this that it is commonly believed to be a particularly difficult language to learn. In fact Old English is a less complex and more modern language than Latin. It is also a beautiful language to speak, and hear spoken, and will reward those who take the trouble to learn it. Many of the Old English manuscripts that have survived the ravages of time give a fascinating insight into English society during what is often, mistakenly, called the Dark Ages. The subject matter of the manuscripts, which vary widely (e.g. laws, riddles), are also important in what they reveal about the origins of English institutions and attitudes.

In addition, there is a discussion topic in each section.
