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: Toward a Typology of Causative Constructions
Edited By: Jae Jung Song
Series Title: Languages of the World 23
Description:

This study provides cross-linguistic data to substantiate the typology of causative contructions on the basis of which a diachronic model of causative affixes has been proposed in Song [Lingua 82:151-200(1990)].

Three types of causative contructions are identified and exemplified: the compact type, the AND type and the PURP type. The study closes with a diachronic question whether the semantic neutralization of the purpose markers occurs initially in causatives.
