Die Monographie bietet eine umfassende Darstellung des Gegenstands Volksetymologie. Die Arbeit hat drei Hauptteile: Zuerst wird eine forschungsgeschichtliche Darstellung gegeben. Zweitens beschreibt die Arbeit auf der Grundlage von Beispielen die theoretischen Aspekte der Volksetymologie. Drittens ist eine ausgreifende Bibliographie der Forschungsliteratur zusammengestellt. Volksetymologie wurde und wird manchmal als 'Schmunzelecke' der Sprachwissenschaft angesehen. Volksetymologien sind Fehler, und Fehler sind lustig, besonders dann, wenn man sie nicht selbst macht. Volksetymologie basiert auf dem Verknüpfen von sprachlichem Material, das sprachgeschichtlich nicht zusammengehört. Die Beschäftigung mit Volksetymologien zeigt, daß und wie Sprecher (gedankliche) Realität schaffen, um ihren Sprachschatz 'in Ordnung' zu halten.

Arnstein has, over the course of a career spanning more than 40 years, arguably introduced more students to British history than any other American historian. This collection of essays by some of his former students celebrates Arnstein’s inspirational teaching and writing with surveys and analyses of various aspects of the social, cultural, economic and political history of nineteenth and mid-twentieth-century Britain. This title will be of interest to students of history.

In this important study Dr Smith uses a wide range of primary materials to provide the first modern comprehensive examination of the work, writings and ideas of James Fitzjames Stephen. Stephen's broad rationalist/utilitarian ethical and intellectual stance manifested itself most prominently in law and social and political philosophy. Stephen's turn of mind led him to perceive the substance of literature and religious orthodoxy as of complementary interest and relevance to the social and political mores of Victorian England, making him one of Dickens' and Cardinal Newman's most formidable and trenchant critics. Dr Smith's account is the first to set Stephen's life and thought in its proper Victorian context, and marks a significant addition to the growing literature on the intellectual history of nineteenth-century England.

The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Literary Culture is a major contribution to the dynamic field of Victorian studies. This collection of 37 original chapters by leading international Victorian scholars offers new approaches to familiar themes, including science, religion, and gender, and gives space to newer and emerging topics, including old age, fair play, and economics. Structured around three broad sections (on "Ways of Being: Identity and Ideology," "Ways of Understanding: Knowledge and Belief," and "Ways of Communicating: Print and Other Cultures"), the volume is sub-divided into nine sub-sections each with its own "lead" essay: on subjectivity, politics, gender and sexuality, place and race, religion, science, material and mass culture, aesthetics and visual culture, and theatrical culture. The collection, like today's Victorian studies, is thoroughly interdisciplinary and yet its substantial Introduction explores a concern which is evident both implicitly and explicitly in the volume's essays: that is, the nature and status of "literary" culture and the literary from the Victorian period to the present. The diverse and wide-ranging essays present original scholarship framed accessibly for a mixed readership of advanced undergraduates, graduate students and established scholars.
