Title: Introduction: new dimensions in genitive variation
Author: John Payne
Institution: University of Manchester
Author: Eva Berlage
Institution: Universität Hamburg
Linguistic Field: Morphology
Subject Language: English
Abstract: This special issue concerns English genitive variation: the choice between the s-genitive and the of-genitive. It has grown out of the workshop ‘Genitive variation in English’, which was held at the conference of the International Society for the Linguistics of English at the University of Boston in June 2011. While previous research on genitive variation has already unearthed a wealth of factors predicting the variation, the aim of this volume is to add new dimensions to existing parameters.
