Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."


Book Information

   

Title: Romance in HPSG
Written By: Sergio Balari Ravera
Luca Dini
Description:

This volume addresses several aspects of the syntax and semantics of Romance Languages from the constraint-based, lexicalist perspective of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG). The papers in this volume not only broaden the empirical coverage of HPSG, but also discuss the significant implications of Romance languages for the development of HPSG theory. Among the critical topics discussed in this book are: bounded and unbounded dependency constructions, argument structure, the syntax and semantics of quantification, null complements, missing object constructions, cliticization, and the syntax and semantics of nominal expressions.
