If you have a question about this talk, please contact Louise Radok.

Linguistic variation resulting from differences in register is relatively easy to detect in periods for which there are extremely large corpora of texts whose context is well understood; however, in periods when the corpora for a given language is more restricted, identifying the factors responsible for observed variation can be more difficult. The focus of this talk will be on morphosyntactic variation and the empirical issues involved in determining its nature, and in particular on certain types of variation occurring in Old English.
