Germanic Tradition and Latin Learning in Wulfstan's Echoic Compounds
Anglo-Saxon, latin, German Stock
A common reflex in scholarly discussions on Anglo-Saxon style has been to ask where the style comes from. The discussion usually boils down to stylistic elements originating from native Germanic stock or from Latin learning, which occasionally mediates Greek and even Hebrew traditions. Celtic tradition is sometimes thrown into the mix as something in between native and learned.
