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."

Title: Partitions and Atoms of Clause Structure
Written By: Dominique Sportiche
Description:

This collection builds on the theory of Principles and Parameters and its Economy--minimalist descendants. The essays progressively develop a view of syntactic structures in which syntactic properties are increasingly analyzed as atomized in progressively smaller elementary components and partitioned in the way these elementary components are represented. Dominique Sportiche argues that as a consequence of this view, languages do not differ at all in their syntactic organization.
