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: Zum Germanischen aus laryngaltheoretischer Sicht (Germanic Languages from the Perspective of Laryngeal Theory. With an Introduction to the Foundations of Laryngeal Theory)
Subtitle: Mit einer Einführung in die Grundlagen der Laryngaltheorie
Written By: Stefan Müller
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110196047-1
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 88
Description:

The book is concerned with a particular set of Indo-European sounds, the
laryngeals, and the effect they had on the sounds, forms and etymologies of
the Germanic languages. It contains detailed introductions to all the
fundamentals of laryngeal theory, together with an introduction to the
problematic history of the laryngeal theory which can be read without
specialist knowledge. Research into the Germanic languages has not
previously taken account of laryngeal theory, but with it many a sound law,
etymology and morphological development can be reformulated or made more
precise.
