'Connective profiles' in the history of English texts Aspects of orality and literacy
Thomas Kohnen University of Cologne 1. Introduction Many studies on
coordinators and subordinators in the history of English tend to focus on the
development of individual items and their position in the language system. In this
study I propose another way of looking at the history of connectives in English by
means of examining 'connective profiles' of texts and text types. I will look at the
distribution, ...

Introduction Historical (or diachronic) speech act analysis has been gathering
momentum in recent years (e.g. Arnovick 1999; Culpeper and Semino 2000;
Jucker and Taavitsainen 2000; Taavitsainen and Jucker 2007; Kohnen 2000a,
2000b, 2002b, 2004; Archer 2005). In this paper, we intend to extend this work
further by exploring how English requests, from the period 1640-1760, vary in two
historical text types: trial proceedings and play texts. We will also compare our
findings with ...

What are the characteristic features of the text type? What is its function? What are its restrictions? Examples of the same period might help to get a comprehensive notion of the text type in question.

This introduction to the resources available for the history of English focuses on
the nature of the evidence and the difficulties associated with individual text types
. The chapter focuses on the Old and Middle English periods which perhaps pose
the greatest challenge to those who are not specialists in these areas. An
overview of the resources available for the early periods highlights general
problems in terms of uneven diatopic and diachronic coverage, the uncertainties
of dating and ...

Texts from biographies, press reportages, and academic prose might therefore
be similar in having a narrative linguistic form and might be grouped together as
a single text type, even though they represent three different genres. Linguistic
corpora allow researchers not only to identify ways in which regional or national
varieties of English differ from each other, as seen above, but also to study the
stylistic distinctiveness of texts from the point of view of different genres and text

We are as much interested in exploring and defining particular features through
explorations within particular text- types in the light of all the contextual factors
that shape them, as using those features to characterise the text-types
themselves. Note that this is also contrary to the methods of earlier generations of
history of English scholars who seem to think that we should first 'define' what
spoken language is and then proceed to investigate it in historical texts (Wyld [
], for ...
