C.U.P. has just published a research monograph authored by Paula Rodríguez-Puente

 

Paula Rodríguez-Puente, a member of VLCG, has just published the following important research monograph on the development of English phrasal verbs: 

Paula Rodríguez-Puente. 2019. The English Phrasal Verb, 1650-1990. History, Stylistic Drifts, and Lexicalisation. (Studies in English Language). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. xx + 321 pp. ISBN: 9781107101746.

Providing a detailed and comprehensive account of the development of phrasal verbs from Early modern to Present-Day English, this study covers almost 400 years in the history of English, and provides both a diachronic and synchronic account based on over 12,000 examples extracted from stratified electronic corpora. The corpus analysis provides evidence of how registers can inform us about the history of English, as it traces and compares the usage and stylistic drifts of phrasal verbs across ten different genres – drama, fiction, journals, diaries, letters, medicine, news, science, sermons, and trial proceedings. The study also sheds new light on the morpho-syntactic and semantic features of phrasal verbs, proposing a new approach to the category, considering not only their grammatical features, but also their historical development, by discussing the category in terms of a number of central mechanisms of language change.
