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: Interfaces in Linguistics
Subtitle: New Research Perspectives
Edited By: Raffaella Folli
Christiane Ulbrich
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199567249.do
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This book explores the interaction of grammatical components in a wide
variety of languages, and presents and exemplifies new experimental and
analytic techniques for studying linguistic interfaces. Speaking a language
requires access to the different aspects of its grammar - semantic,
syntactic, phonological, pragmatic, morphological, and phonetic. Knowing
how these interact is crucial to understanding the operations of any
specific language and to the explanation of how language in general
operates in the mind. The new research presented here combines theoretical
and experimental perspectives on one of the most productive fields in
contemporary linguistics.

After the editors' introduction the volume is organized along four themes:
the structural properties of sentences interfacing with meaning and the
lexicon; internal word structure and its effect on the syntactic and
phonological components; the syntax-phonology interface and its relation to
the phonetics-phonology interface; and the implications of interfaces for
language acquisition and language processing. The book will interest
theoretical linguists and all those in linguistics and cognitive science
working on the mental operations of language.
