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."
Satzverknüpfungen [Sentence to Sentence Linkage. On the Interaction of Form, Meaning and Discourse Function]
Zur Interaktion von Form, Bedeutung und Diskursfunktion
Linking simple sentences to complex units is an elementary process which all languages use to bridge the gap between the structure of the simple sentence and that of texts. This volume is a collection of articles which explore this theme from different perspectives: system-related, history of the language, comparative linguistics, discourse-related, corpus linguistics.
