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: Phonology with Ternary Scales
Written By: Amalia E. Gnanadesikan
Description:

This work proposes a series of ternary scales to replace certain traditionally binary features. The focus is on the Inherent Voicing Scale (Voiceless Obstruent,
Voiced Obstruent, Sonorant), which replace [voice] and [sonorant]. Applications are made to assimilations, neutralization, and consonant mutation, providing natural accounts for a number of previously opaque processes. Other proposed scales are Consonant
Stricture (stop, fricative, approximant/voiced) and Vowel
Height (low, mid, high), which replace [continuant], [consonantal], [high] and [low].
