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: The Grammar of Q
Subtitle: Q-Particles, Wh-Movement, and Pied-Piping
Written By: Seth Alfred Cable
URL: http://www.us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Linguistics/SyntaxMorphology/?view=usa&ci=978019539
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

"The Grammar of Q" puts forth a novel syntactic and semantic analysis of wh-
questions, one that is based upon in-depth study of the Tlingit language, an
endangered and under-documented language of North America. A major
consequence of this new approach is that the phenomenon classically dubbed
"pied-piping" does not actually exist.
