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 Role of Data at the Semantics-Pragmatics Interface
Edited By: Eniko Nemeth
K. Bibok
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110240269-1
Series Title: Mouton Series in Pragmatics 9
Description:

To join the recent debate on data problem in linguistics, this collection
of papers provides complex dual purpose analyses at the interface of
semantics and pragmatics (including historical, lexical, formal and
experimental pragmatics). Based on several current theories and various
types of data taken from a number of languages, it discusses object
theoretical issues of referentiality, scalar implicatures, implicit
arguments, grammaticalization, co-construction and syntactic alternation in
their mutual connections to metatheoretical questions concerning the
relationship between data and theory.
