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."

Description:

Now in Paperback.

Using Chomsky's minimalist program as a framework, this volume explores the
role of formal (or functional) features in current descriptions and
accounts of language acquisition. In engaging, up-to-date articles,
distinguished experts examine the role of features in current versions of
generative grammar and in learnability theory as it relates to native,
non-native, and impaired acquisition.
