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: Deixis und Anaphorik [Deixis and Anaphor – Reference Strategies in Text, Sentence and Word. A Typological-Contrastive Study of German and Japanese]
Subtitle: Referenzstrategien in Text, Satz und Wort
Written By: Shin Tanaka
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110256413-1
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 42
Description:

This study propounds the thesis that in language two strategies can be found to
produce reference that differ in profundity and character from one language to
another: deixis and anaphor. By means of contrastive analysis of two language
systems that are far removed from each other phylogenetically, the study shows
that the aforementioned reference strategies determine the grammar of the
language to a great extent. This is demonstrated on all relevant linguistic levels
‑ on the textual level, on the sentence level and on the word level.
