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: Applicatives
Subtitle: Structure and interpretation from a minimalist perspective
Written By: Youngmi Jeong
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20104
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 104
Description:

Applicatives is concerned with the syntax of constructions that contain
arguments that transcend the traditional subject-object characterization,
and how the syntax of such constructions yields the interpretive effects
that previous research has identified. At the empirical level this volume
remedies the inadequacies and limitations of previous accounts by proposing
a more nuanced view of all the factors that enter into the syntax and
semantics of applicatives. At the theoretical level, this book offers
empirical arguments for various theoretical options currently entertained
in the minimalist program, among which movement into theta-position,
multiple agree, anti-locality, and a very derivational view on successive
cyclic movement.
