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: A Unified Theory of Verbal and Nominal Projections
Written By: Yoshiki Ogawa
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-514388-4
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

Syntactically speaking, it has long been known that noun phrases are
parallel to clauses in many respects. While most syntactic theories
incorporate this principle, nouns have generally been regarded as inferior
to verbs in terms of their licensing abilities, and nominal projections
have been regarded as less complex than verbal projections in terms of the
number of functional categories that they contain. Ogawa, however, argues
that clauses and noun phrases are perfectly parallel. This book provides a
unified theory of clauses and noun phrases, ultimately helping to simplify
numerous thorny issues in the syntax/morphology interface.
