The great difficulty of balancing lexicology with textual criticism in a study of this scope is epitomized in a case from this chapter. The implicit chronology undermines the lexicological claim.
The question of how these two words represent one sin is bound up in unexamined problems of textual history: if the compositor of this homily or his source is conflating two distinct lists of the cardinal vices or deadly sins, which lists are they, and are these two words crowding onto acedia or tristitia? No semantic conclusion can be drawn without an answer to this question. A few lexicological errors appear in the book. Old English irre is erroneously derived from Latin ira 15, 65 and conflated with Middle English ire , which is correctly identified as a borrowing from French Unfortunately, the editing for this volume is spotty.
On the second page, a paragraph is printed twice. The bibliography is incomplete, missing editions for a number of the texts sampled here.
Middle English Verbs of Emotion and Impersonal Constructions : Verb Meaning and Syntax in Diachrony
This is especially important because Ogura relies on her own, undescribed corpus Recent scholarship on emotions and on syntax, notably on transitivization, is not considered or engaged. Plamper interviews these prominent scholars whose works have deeply affected the field, prompting them to reflect on their own work and methods as well as to discuss new developments.

Leiden: Brill, Through a careful study of the behaviour of impersonal and near-synonymous non-impersonal verbs, she identifies the factors that determined the presence, absence, and spread of impersonal usage with the verbs concerned. Miura utilizesmodern linguistic approaches, including theories and methodologies adopted in the study of psych-verbs in modern languages, which bear close relevance to impersonal verbs of emotion but have traditionally been researched separately. She also draws on categorizations in the Historical Thesaurus ofthe Oxford English Dictionary and harnesses the online Middle English Dictionary in a novel way, demonstrating that dictionary materials are in fact a valuable tool in the study of early English syntax and semantics.
Miura concludes that a range of factors - such as causation, transitivity, animacy of the target of emotion, and duration of the emotion - influenced the choice of impersonal constructions with Middle English verbs of emotion. We can therefore make reasonable generalizations about when impersonalusage was licensed in these verbs. This careful analysis of the correlation between Middle English verbs of emotion and use or non-use in impersonal constructions represents a new empirical and theoretical contribution to the busy research area of impersonal constructions in the history ofEnglish.

From the Author Impersonal constructions in the history of English form a puzzling category, in that there has been uncertainty as to why some verbs are attested in such constructions while others are not, even though they look almost synonymous.
