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: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory 57
Description:

This book analyzes the structure of coordination from two perspectives: the symmetrical properties the construction imposes on its conjuncts, and how conjuncts interact with other categories outside coordination with respect to agreement and other grammatical phenomena. It focuses on data from Spanish as this language is characterized by its rich pattern of overt agreement between the subject and the verb, between nouns and adjectives, and also between clitics and lexical DP objects and indirect objects. + It offers a simple, unified theory of coordination within current syntactic frameworks + It provides a succinct summary of the main analysis of coordination, highlighting the most important generalizations they have made + It proposes explicit analyses for long-standing problems in issues of coordination + It provides a detailed description of agreement patterns in different languages (primarily Spanish), and the connection between agreement and word order + It presents a detailed account of the connection between switch-reference and coordination Audience: This volume is of interest to professionals in the field of linguistics and related fields (cognitive science, philosophy of language)
