Samenvatting

This thematic issue on Early Modern West Germanic homes in on the processes underlying the extensive amount of morphosyntactic vari- ation and change within and between language users in this era. It demon- strates that language structure and language use often interacted with each other, and illustrates that, to fully understand the triggers and extent of this variation and change, we need to combine perspectives and methodological tools from different (sub)disciplines. That is why this issue brings together scholars working on Early Modern West Germanic in different fields and disciplines –- in particular scholars from early modern literary studies, formal (historical) linguistics, computational linguistics and historical sociolinguistics –- to present a wide array of possible methodologies to investigate historical language variation, and to explore how the different approaches can complement each other to help further our understanding of the complex setting of variation.
