 A standard language would have been much more important to
Caxton, a publisher of printed books, than to a scribe who
produced one copy at a time.
 There was a Europe-wide norm for books in Latin, which made it
possible for the printed book to become a successful international
merchandise.
 Achieving a linguistic norm for the vernacular was of economic
importance for the distribution of Caxton’s books, and he was
evidently aware of this, but he did not have the background to
create a new norm.
 At most, his English printed books helped consolidate a growing
perception that the language used in the London region was a
nationwide standard.
