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: Minimal Words in a Minimal Syntax
Written By: Gunlög Josefsson
Series Title: Lingvistic Aktuell/Linguistics Today, 19
Description:

In Minimal Words in a Minimal Syntax the author combines a detailed description of the morphological structure of words in Swedish with a new approach to theoretical morphology based on the Minimalist Program of Chomsky (1995) (as developed for syntactic structure). The X-bar theoretic approach to word structure of the Principles and Parameters framework is replaced by a rule free approach incorporating only Merge and Move as structure building devices.
