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: Syntactic Dependencies and Relative Phrases in Hindi
Written By: Veena D. Dwivedi
Description:

This dissertation explores various syntactic dependencies from relative phrases in Hindi. In addition to Scrambling, Topicalisation and Left Dislocation, Topic Dislocation is recognized. This non-movement relation is limited to referential NPs which are related to null pronominals; because no movement is involved, Topic Dislocation is not subject to Subjancency. Several cases of asymmetric coordination, including correlatives and 'that' clauses, are also explored in detail.
