The monograph is the first comprehensive study of changes in past participle marking in Mediaeval English. Before the shape of the past participle as we know it was established, the historical form used to be marked redundantly, attaching both the appropriate suffix and the prefix ge-.  The study establishes temporal and geographical conditioning for the loss of prefixal marking as well as the relation between the suffixation and prefixation.  As such, it shall be of great interest especially to all those researching in English historical grammar, but also to readers attracted to dialectal studies.
