Nonstandard Structures in English Counterfactuals
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I'm looking at the non-standard structures "if NP had have + past
participle" and "NP wish had have" in terms of grammaticalization and
am comparing them to "would have + past participle" as well as
standard structures in counterfactual conditionals, but I've found very
little in the literature about them - my lecturer suggested I post a query
here in the hope that someone might know of any papers on this area.
Could you please let me know if there is any recently published
material on this?
So far I've found just three papers: "Parallelism vs. asymmetry: The
case of English counterfactual conditionals" by Rafal Malencki in
Pathways of Change - Grammaticalization in English (2000) edited by
Fischer et al; "'If She Had of Shutted the Cage, the Rabbit wouldn't
escape': Past Counterfactuals Elicited from 6-to 11-Year-Old Children"
(2004), by Alison Crutchley and "'I Wish I Would Have Known!': The
Usage of Would Have in Past Counterfactual If- and Wish Clauses"
(2003), by Noriko Ishihara.
