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: Semantics in Acquisition
Edited By: Veerle van Geenhoven
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-8513-0
Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

*The two linguistic subfields of semantics and language acquisition are
connected to each other, which has rarely been done before.

*Semantics usually deals with adult language, and language acquisition
usually is studied from the perspective of syntax or from a functional
perspective, but not systematically from a formal semantic one.

This volume contains writings focusing on semantic phenomena and their
interpretation in the analysis of the language of a learner. The variety of
phenomena that are addressed is substantial: temporal aspect and tense,
specificity, quantification, scope, finiteness, focus structure, and focus
particles. These phenomena are investigated is many languages. The volume
creates a theoretical as well as an empirical bridge between semantic
research on the one hand and psycholinguistic acquisition studies on the other.
