An analysis of the element order in an important early Middle English text, the Lambeth Homilies (LH), was made using a computer text analysis program, OCP. The data revealed was used in a series of comparative studies (using in the main data in a study by Kohonoen (1978) for comparison) to examine the development of element order in this period and the stage of that development as represented in the text analysed. The studies also represented a test of the effectiveness of a computer-generated analysis of an early text using a text analysis program run on a Personal Computer. Also examined were various linguistic factors which may have been influential in the development of element order in this period.
