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: Minimalist Essays on Brazilian Portuguese Syntax
Edited By: Jairo Nunes
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20142
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 142
Description:

This collection of papers discusses some of the major syntactic properties
of Brazilian Portuguese from a minimalist perspective. The volume focuses
on movement and empty category issues and brings new empirical material on
a variety of topics (null subjects and finite control, possessive and
existential constructions, factive constructions, relative clauses, null
objects and stress shift, preposition duplication, VP topicalization, and
ellipsis). The book is of interest to a wide spectrum of linguists working
on theoretical and comparative syntax.
