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."

Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 115
Description:

This book is devoted to double forms of the perfect tense in the German language. The study is based on an extensive corpus of double formations of the perfect tense as they have been used over the past eight centuries. This compilation takes into account both written language (the dimension of distance) and spoken language (the dimension of proximity). On the basis of the collected empirical data, the study addresses specific questions about the structure, diachronic use, and diachronic meaning of double-perfect tense formations.
