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: Recent Trends in Meaning-Text Theory
Written By: Leo Wanner
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series, 39
Description:

The present volume contains articles of well-known representatives of Meaning-Text Theory (MTT) and other related linguistic theories. The focus of the volume is on semantics, semantic representation and relation of semantics to surface in MTT. Founded by I. Mel'cuk and A. Zholkovsky in the sixties in Moscow, MTT soon became known in the West as a "prominent outsider" theory. The picture has changed since then, though, as MTT gained importance in several areas of linguistics and computational linguistics. It has influenced the design of new grammar formalisms such as Dependency Tree Grammars. Also, specific parts of MTT have been directly taken into other theories; as, for example, the work on integrating Lexical Functions into Pustejovsky's Generative Lexicon.
