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: English morphology and word-formation
Subtitle: An introduction
Written By: Hans-Jörg Schmid
URL: http://www.ESV.info/978-3-503-12248-6
Series Title: Grundlagen der Anglistik und Amerikanistik, Band 25
Description:

Serving as a basic introduction to the field of English morphology and word-
formation, this book also tries to advance the state-of-the-art in this field in a
number of respects. The author takes his readers gently through the basic
notions in English morphology and word-formation and discusses problematic
areas and definitorial questions. All chapters are approached systematically
from three different angles focusing on structural, cognitive and sociopragmatic
aspects of the field. In this way, new perspectives are opened particularly on
the development and establishment of new complex words, on the cognitive
functions of word-formation patterns and on the field of conversion.
