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: 'COME' and 'GO' off the Beaten Grammaticalization Path
Edited By: Maud Davos
Jenneke van der Wal
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/211524?format=G
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 272
Description:

This edition brings together some lesser known grammaticalization paths travelled by ‘come’ and ‘go’ in familiar and less familiar languages. No single book volume has been dedicated to the topic of grammatical targets different from tense and aspect so far. This study will increase our insight in grammaticalization processes in general as they force us to rethink certain aspects of grammaticalization.
