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: Explorations of Phase Theory
Subtitle: Features and Arguments
Edited By: Kleanthes K. Grohmann
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110205206-1
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 18
Description:

This is the first volume dedicated to the study of formal features and the
expression of arguments within Phase Theory, the latest model of syntactic
theorizing within the Minimalist Program. The collection addresses the
nature of formal features and their role in the syntactic computation as
well as checking mechanisms and configurations. It also investigates
theoretical issues underlying the nature of syntactic arguments and their
licensing (argument structure at large) and specific grammatical operations
involving arguments (abstract and morphological case, empty elements,
passivization, negation, and aspect).

The chapters presented in this volume provide case studies from several,
typologically unrelated languages. Apart from novel analyses of new as well
as well-known facts, the contributions also provide interesting aspects of
and challenges for Phase Theory in general, by critically exploring a
number of theoretical extensions, proposing new syntactic mechanisms, and
sharpening our tools for linguistic analysis.
