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 Prosody-Morphology Interface
Edited By: René Kager
Wim Zonneveld
Harry van der Hulst
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521621089
Description:

In many languages, word formation is restricted by principles of prosody
that organize speech sounds into larger units such as the syllable. Written
by an international team of leading linguists in the field of prosodic
morphology, this book examines a range of key issues in the interaction of
word formation and prosody. It provides an explanation for nonconcatenative
morphology that occurs in different forms (such as reduplication) in many
languages, by an interaction of independent general principles of prosodic
and morphological well-formedness.
