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: Studies in the Morpho-Syntax of Greek
Edited By: Artemis Alexiadou
Description:

The volume presents a collection of papers of recent generative work on
Modern Greek morpho-syntax. The book is divided into three parts. Part I of
the book deals with argument alternations, Part II with clitics and Part
III with the syntax and semantics of free relatives. The book will be
interesting for scholars working on Greek but also in theoretical
linguistics, as it exemplifies how the study of Greek feeds the development
of generative theory.

The issues discussed in the book are currently highly relevant for the
develop­ment of a satisfactory theory of comparative syntax as well as the
interface between syntax and morphology and syntax and semantics. Thus the
analyses put forth here will contribute to the elaboration of such a theory
and to our understanding of cross-linguistic variation.
