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: At The Syntax-Pragmatics Interface
Subtitle: Verbal Underspecification and Concept Formation in Dynamic Syntax
Written By: Lutz Marten
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/search/jsp/docread.jsp?k2dockey=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oup-usa.org%2Fisbn%2F0199250634.html%40oup&querytext=Oxford+Studies+in+Theoretical+Linguistics+4
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics 4
Description:

Marten explores the interaction of syntax, pragmatics, and semantics in the behavior of verb phrases and how they interact with the information provided by the verb. He also considers how the component elements of linguistic theory explain what appear to be simple utterances, but whose structure is hard to analyze--how, for example, "Fran is baking Mary a cake in the oven" is different from "Fran is baking Mary a cake in the kitchen".
