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: Linguistic Realization of Evidentiality in European Languages
Edited By: Gabriele Diewald
Elena Smirnova
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110223965-1
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 49
Description:

This book presents a selection of contributions to the workshop "Linguistic
realization of evidentiality in European languages", held at the 30th
Annual Convention of the German Society of Linguistics in Bamberg (February
27-29, 2008), and additional papers, which have been especially
commissioned for this volume. Its main focus lies on providing further
empirical evidence about languages that have various - lexical as well as
grammatical - evidential expressions.

The papers in this volume will offer a cross-linguistic perspective on this
topic as they deal with a number of different language families and
languages: Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian), Germanic languages
(Dutch, German, English, Icelandic), Baltic and Slavic languages, Greek,
Basque, and Turkish.
