Excerpt from French Elements in Middle English: Chapters Illustrative of the Origin and Growth of Romance Influence on the Phrasal Power of Standard English in Its Formative Period

Lacking, then, the definitive works in many aspects of the pro blem of French in?uence in mide., we can easily see how defective and misleading the books of Thommerel 1, Dickmann 2, &c., are in professing to give an account of the rise of the English language. Morsbach's work on the origin of the new English literary lan guage3 has a most inviting title and a most-disappointing content. Granting that the language of the earliest English documents of London is in substantial agreement with the language of Chaucer, when 'language is restricted to a basis of vowels, consonants, and in?exions, how much further are we towards understanding the rise of that new English literary language, which was marked not merely by peculiarities of phonology and morphology, but by most extensive changes in phraseology, idiom, syntax?
