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."

Description:

The study of spatial language has produced an intense theoretical debate, in
both linguistics and cognitive science. In spite of the rich literature produced
so far, the topic has still to offer many suggestions for developing new lines
of research, thanks not only to the most recent advances in cognitive
neuroscience, but also to new data coming from more traditional synchronic
and diachronic linguistic studies. The lively state of the art in this field is
nicely represented by the present volume, which aims at summing up the
current status of studies on the representation of spatial categories with a
wide spectrum of topics, ranging from the cognitive aspects of spatial
categories to their typological correlates in the languages of the world, from
the lexicon of space to grammaticalisation processes, from neuro-cognitive
evidence about the representation of spatial categories to L2 acquisition.
Besides to the contributions of many young scholars working in the field of
spatial categories in human languages, the book includes the papers of some
of the most widely recognized experts in the study of space and its relation
with cognition and language
