Base And Suffix Paradigms: Qualitative Evidence Of Emergent Borrowed Suffixes In Multiple Late Middle And Early Modern English Registers, Chris C. Palmer 2010 Kennesaw State University

Base And Suffix Paradigms: Qualitative Evidence Of Emergent Borrowed Suffixes In Multiple Late Middle And Early Modern English Registers, Chris C. Palmer

Chris C. Palmer

Even though many studies of historical morphology have described trends and changes in
the productivity of borrowed suffixes in English, such as -able, -age, -ance, -ity, -cion,
-ment and -ous, few studies have been able to illustrate how borrowed suffixes initially
came to be perceived by speakers as independent, productive units. This study aims to
identify and analyze two types of textual evidence – so-called base paradigms and suffix
paradigms – to demonstrate how and when English writers and readers might have
perceived the endings of borrowings as analyzable, detachable suffixes. Textual examples
are selected from a variety of fourteenth- through sixteenth-century ...

A Study Of Three Related Versions Of The Medieval Exemplum "The Incestuous Daughter", Sarah L. Goldthrite 2010 The College at Brockport

A Study Of Three Related Versions Of The Medieval Exemplum "The Incestuous Daughter", Sarah L. Goldthrite

English Master’s Theses

Widely overlooked since the late 19th century, three versions of the medieval religious exemplum "The Incestuous Daughter" offer a glimpse into medieval England' s ideas about sexuality and religion. The evaluation of the variation in language among the three versions, as well as a comparison of the usage of now extinct word forms found in each manuscript, point to a late 15th to early 16th century origin. A study of the content of the texts, the physical movement of the texts, and the relationship of these elements to the religious teachings and political disturbances of the time in which the ...

Rivers Of Divinity: The Impact Of A Classical And Medieval Tradition On Chaucer And Malory, Anthony G. Cirilla 2010 The College at Brockport

Rivers Of Divinity: The Impact Of A Classical And Medieval Tradition On Chaucer And Malory, Anthony G. Cirilla

English Master’s Theses

Chaucer and Malory to classical river god providence, where epic poets wrestle with the ideas of empire and fate by questioning the river god's ability to exert his autonomy. Because river god providence is finite, it is susceptible to a peculiar frustration in exerting its legitimate authority at the hands of fate. Homer, Statius and Lucan all present versions of a failed river god providence, while Virgil alone creates a successful example of the tradition. His example, however, is in turn parodied by Ovid, which highlights further the ambiguities of river god providence. Medieval chroniclers and romancers utilize a ...

Mankind, Kathleen Ashley, Gerard NeCastro 2010 University of Southern Maine

Mankind, Kathleen Ashley, Gerard Necastro

Kathleen M. Ashley

Mankind is without a doubt the most amusing and controversial morality play surviving from fifteenth-century England. As an allegory about the vulnerable situation in which most people find themselves—torn between good judgment and the temptation to misbehave—the play’s moral action is conventional.
