Description: This sixth annual Etymology! conference with Gina Cooke (LEX) and Douglas Harper is a two-day session dedicated to the study of the history of English. We tackle common myths about etymology and morphology, and this year's conference focuses on the changes in our language during the Middle English period. What was Norman French really like? How did Anglo-Norman scribes shape our writing system? What other characters and events had an impact on English, and what are their vestiges today?
