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."


Book Information

   

Title: Focus
Subtitle: Linguistic, Cognitive, and Computational Perspectives
Edited By: Peter Bosch
Rob van der Sandt
Description:

This book presents a collection of papers on the issue of focus in its
broadest sense. While commonly considered as being related to phenomena
such as presupposition and anaphora, focusing is much more widely spread,
and it is this pervasiveness that the current collection addresses. The
work loosely originates from a conference held in 1994 in Schloss
Wolfsbrunnen in Germany, although only a small subpart of the proceedings
papers presented are included here. The contributed papers have been
reworked for the current volume to present a coherent study of the subject.
