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."

Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 176
Description:

This book presents papers in honor of Jerry Sadock’s rich legacy in
pragmatics and Autolexical Grammar. Highlights of the pragmatics section
include Larry Horn on almost, barely, and assertoric inertia;
William Lycan on Sadock’s resolution of the Performadox with
truth1 and truth2; and Jay Atlas on Moore’s
Paradox and the truth value of propositions of belief. Highlights of the
Autolexical Grammar section include Fritz Newmeyer’s comparison of the
minimalist, autolexical, and transformational treatments of English nominals;
Barbara Abott’s extension of Sadock’s PRO-less syntax to a PRO-less
semantics of the infinitival complements of know how; and Haj Ross’s
syntactic connections between semantically related English pseudoclefts.
Encompassing a range of languages (Aleut, Bangla, Greenlandic, Japanese,
and a home-based sign language) and extending into psycholinguistics
(language acquisition, sentence processing, and autism) this volume will
interest a range of readers, from theoretical linguists and philosophers of
language to applied linguists and exotic language specialists.
