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: Komposition und Kompositionalität [Composition and Compositionality]
Subtitle: Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der semantischen Dekodierung von Substantivkomposita
Written By: Verena Klos
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110258868-1
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 292
Description:

This book systematically applies the so-called principle of compositionality to
substantive composition and investigates whether this semantic principle can be
judged a sufficient basis for the understanding of unknown terms. The central
question concerns how far the meaning of a substantive composite with two
nominal elements can be ‘calculated’ from the meaning of its constituents.
Using various empirical studies, the author shows that the principle of
compositionality must be reformulated.
