Old English (Ænglisc, Anglisc, Englisc, pronounced [ˈæŋɡliʃ]), or Anglo-Saxon, is the earliest historical form of the English language, spoken in England and southern and eastern Scotland in the early Middle was probably brought to Great Britain by Anglo-Saxon settlers in the mid-5th century, and the first Old English literary works date from the mid-7th ts: Kentish, Mercian, Northumbrian, West Saxon.

In origin, West Saxon was the language of the Kingdom of Wessex, in the south-west of England. The texts in this book have been normalised into Early West Saxon, the form of this dialect current in the time of King Alfred ( AD), since this provides a useful basis for subsequent linguistic study.

The lack of a more detailed argumentation for abandoning Old English categorisation alone proves how unthinkable describing Middle English in Old English terms would be.2 Similar sentiments were expressed by Reszkiewicz in his preface to Synchronic essentials of Old English: West Saxon (), which he explicitly intended äs a description of.

Old English ie is traditionally assumed to represent diphthongs (long and short) produced by a number of different sound-changes, viz.: palatal diphthongisation; i-umlaut; development of i to ie where back umlaut fails, and where the sequence i + r C arises too late for breaking to occur; and contraction of i + putative diphthongs are confined to the early West Saxon dialect.

West Saxon (Old English: Westseaxisċ) was one of four distinct dialects of Old three others were Kentish, Mercian and Northumbrian (the latter two were similar and are known as the Anglian dialects).

West Saxon was the language of the kingdom of Wessex, and was the basis for successive widely used literary forms of Old English: the Early West Saxon of Alfred the Great's time, and.

Review: REVIEWS EDITOR: Helen Aristar-Dry SUMMARY This book, the second volume in the series ‘A Linguistic History of English’, covers the history of the language from the evolution of Proto-Germanic into its separate daughter languages, until its development into the Old English (OE) attested in documents up to c AD.
