My research interests lie in the development of the English language in the twelfth century. This century is a crucial period in the history of the English language, since it constitutes the transitional period between two language stages which differ vastly in terms of their phonology, morphology, and lexis: Old English and Middle English. My PhD project, ‘Old English Renewed: Tracing Transitional English in the Twelfth Century’, uses digital tools to analyse linguistically updated manuscript copies of originally Old English texts, in order to trace the linguistic developments of twelfth-century English. In doing so, this project will provide unique insights into the lexical, phonological and morphological developments that took place in the English language during this important period.
