Subject: Historical Linguistics: Actualization. Linguistic Change in Progress.

John Benjamins Publishing presents a new work in Historical Linguistics:

Actualization. Linguistic Change in Progress.
Papers from a workshop held at the 14th International Conference on 
Historical Linguistics,
Vancouver, B.C., 14 August 1999
Henning ANDERSEN (University of California, Los Angeles) (ed.)

Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 219
2001. vii, 250 pp. Hardcover
US & Canada: 1 58811 081 8 / USD 77.00
Rest of world: 90 272 3726 3 / EUR 85.00

This collection of papers consolidates the observation that linguistic
change typically is actualized step by step: any structural innovation
being introduced, accepted, and generalized, over time, in one
grammatical environment after another, in a progression that can be
understood by reference to the markedness values and the ranking of
the conditioning features. The Introduction to the volume and a
chapter by Henning Andersen clarify the theoretical bases for this
observation, which is exemplified and discussed in separate chapters
by Kristin Bakken, Alexander Bergs and Dieter Stein, Vit Bubenik,
Ulrich Busse, Marianne Mithun, Lene Sch�sler, and John Charles Smith
in the light of data from the histories of Norwegian, English, Hindi,
Northern Iroquoian, and Romance. A final chapter by Michael Shapiro
adds a philosophical perspective. The papers were first presented in a
workshop on "Actualization Patterns in Linguistic Change" at the XIV
International Conference on Historical Linguistics, Vancouver, B.C.
in 1999.
