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: Genus, Derivation und Quantifikation [Gender, Derivation, and Quantification]
Subtitle: Zur Funktion der Suffigierung und verwandter Phänomene im Deutschen
Written By: Martina Werner
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/184058?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 114
Description:

The function of the grammatical category of gender is one of the most controversial issues in linguistics. This study draws to inquire about the extent to which there is a diachronically established relationship motivated by core grammatical structure between gender and suffixation that can be described in terms of nominal quantification . According to this view, word formation by means of suffixes in New High German serves less for transposition and modification, and more for the creation of overtly marked, quantifiable nouns.
