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: Complementation
Subtitle: A Cross-Linguistic Typology
Edited By: R. M. W. Dixon
Chia-jung Pan
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199297870
Series Title: Explorations in Linguistic Typology
Description:

A complement clause is used instead of a noun phrase; for example one can
say either I heard [the result] or I heard [that England beat France].
Languages lacking complement clauses employ complementation strategies to
achieve similar semantic results. Detailed studies of particular languages,
including Akkadian, Israeli, Jarawara, and Pennsylvania German, are framed
by R.M. W. Dixon's introduction, which sets out the range of issues, and
his conclusion, which draws together the evidence and the arguments.
