Table of Contents
“[T]aken together, the essays have introduced or helped to open a number of exciting new avenues to be pursued by historians of linguistic ideas in Early Modern Europe.”
“[A] number of brilliant, evocative pieces [...]. It portrays the intellectual events of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in a way that not only illuminates that darkly distant linguistic past for us but also places later developments in better lighting.”
