Example text

He was for ever throwing out, with a more-than-Johnsonian authority of tone, hints for a new literary history according to his own criteria, and increas­ ingly he associated himself forces of ideological reaction, deliberately culti­ vating an old-fogey persona to boot. Thanks to the stories that circulated about him he rapidly became a kind of living legend —Virginia Woolf wrote to her brother-in-law: "Come to dinner. Eliot will be there in a four-piece suit" (Sell, 1992). If somebody so important and so meticulously proper seemed to be offensive, it was surely time to reassess one's own notions of decorum.

OE word order is far from having been adequately explained, and there exist important differences of opinion among scholars. Its changes to ME are consequently difficult to ascertain with precision: if we do not know the initial state exactly enough, it will be difficult to explain the changes af­ fecting it. In our case, there are also some differences of opinion concerning PDE word order, so the problem becomes even harder. The difficulty lies perhaps already in the approach used to study word order.
