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: Grammatical Theory and Romance Languages
Edited By: Karen Zagona
Description:

This volume presents recent theoretical research on Romance languages, selected from papers presented at the 25th Linguistic Symposium On Romance Languages. It includes studies of individual Romance languages as well as comparative studies -- both within the Romance family and with non-Romance languages (Basque, Bulgarian, Germanic and uechua). Papers in phonetics and phonology treat stress, syllable structure, s-weakening. and the declination effect. Morphological topics include class-marker suppression and gender agreement and suppletion. Topics in syntactic theory include clitics, participial and adjectival agreement, the syntax of tense, mood, negation, adjectival predication. Tough-constructions, quantification and null objects.
