This textbook is intended as an introduction to basic questions of the synchronic and diachronic study of the English language. It wants to provide a succinct account of some structural elements of Modern English (= ModE), and these structural elements are projected back to their historical origins. The approach is structural and historical.

I hope that what is offered here will arouse further curiosity for a most fascinating subject. A workbook with exercises on the material dealt with here is in preparation; this workbook will also contain ample references to speacialized literature.
