Historical Code-Mixing in English Place-Names
This book provides new insights into the nature of hybrid place-names in England. It uncovers the different patterns of hybrid place-name formation, investigating the Celtic, the Anglo-Saxon, the Scandinavian and the Norman French layers and elements of English toponymy. The book analyses research conducted on a corpus of toponyms drawn from a place-name dictionary, and is embedded within the framework of sociolinguistics. It will appeal historians, historical linguists, and sociolinguists, as well as place-name scholars and local history enthusiasts.
