Summary of thesis I will transcribe and analyse various manuscripts from the period 1400-1700 in order to examine what effect the urban vernacular of Coventry had on the origin and spread of formal written English. This PhD is part of a larger project which researches the effect of the urban vernaculars of York, Norwich, Coventry and Bristol on formal written English (see emergingstandards.eu for more information). For this PhD I work within the following fields: historical linguistics, historical sociolinguistics, manuscript studies and socio-economic histories.
