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: (Nicht-)kanonische Nebensätze im Deutschen [(Non-)Canonical Subordinate Clauses in German]
Subtitle: Synchrone und diachrone Aspekte
Written By: Katrin Axel-Tober
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/181126?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistische Arbeiten 542
Description:

Aspects of sentence construction and the grammar of subordination have
always been a key issue of German grammar description and theory. This
diachronously and synchronously oriented study focuses not only on the
creation of the ‘dass’ sentence but also on non-canonical subordinate-clause
constructions such as argumental and relative clauses with main-clause word
order (verb second, verb first) and correlative adverbial clauses. Thus the book
contributes to the issue – recently much discussed– of the relationship between
the formal and interpretative properties of subordination.
