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: Variation and Change in Morphology
Subtitle: Selected papers from the 13th International Morphology Meeting, Vienna, February 2008
Edited By: Franz Rainer
Wolfgang U. Dressler
Hans Christian Luschützky
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20310
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 310
Description:

The papers in this volume derive from the 13th International Morphology
Meeting (Vienna 2008). They all address the main topic of the meeting, viz.
variation and change in morphology. Inflectional and derivational
morphology are represented on equal terms. The focus is on cases of
language-internal variation, such as pattern competition, base variation,
form–function mismatches, or morphological pleonasm. Other recurring themes
are language contact as a cause of variation, the output-orientedness of
morphological patterns, and linguistic economy.The contributions cover a
wide variety of languages, both Indo-European (Romance, Germanic and
Slavic; Latin, Lithuanian and Romani) and non-Indo-European (Hungarian,
Maay, Chinese).
