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: The Formal Expression of Markedness
Written By: Paul V. de Lacy
URL: http://server102.hypermart.net/glsa/index.htm
Description:

This dissertation presents a formal theory of markedness, set within
Optimality Theory. Two of the leading ideas are (a) hierarchical markedness relations may be ignored, but never reversed and (b) the more marked an element is, the greater the pressure to preserve it. Phenomena discussed include sonority-driven stress, epenthesis, Place neutralization, assimilation, and coalescence.
