Overview

The book takes a new look at the typological change of English from a synthetic towards an analytic language, focusing on the lexical domain. It presents empirical data that document a considerable decline in the use of synthetic structures in the history of English noun formation and relates them to other typological changes in English morphology, showing the global structural reorganization of the language.
