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: Coreference, Modality, and Focus
Subtitle: Studies on the syntax-–semantics interface
Edited By: Luis Eguren

Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 111
Description:

This volume is a collection of selected papers originally presented at the
XVI Colloquium on Generative Grammar that was held at the Universidad
Autónoma de Madrid. All the papers deal with current issues within the
generative framework, mostly paying attention to phenomena pertaining to
the syntax-semantics interface. The major concerns are coreference
relations, modals and modality, and focus/ellipsis. More specifically, the
contributions present research findings from different languages, often
adopting a comparative perspective, and include studies on sub-extraction
from subjects and objects; onobviation and Control structures; on
specificity and Weak Crossover effects; and on reconstruction without
movement, as well as papers that address the scopal interactions between
tense/aspect and modals; the syntactic and semantic properties of different
types of left-periphery operators; and the role focus plays in elliptical
constructions.
