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: Argument Realization
Written By: Beth Levin
Malka Rappaport Hovav
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521663311
Series Title: Research Surveys in Linguistics
Description:

The relationship between verbs and their arguments is a widely debated
topic in linguistics. This comprehensive survey provides an up-to-date
overview of this important area of research, exploring current theories of
how a verb's semantics can determine the morphosyntactic realization of its
arguments. Assuming a close connection between verb meaning and syntactic
structure, it provides a bridge between lexical-semantic and syntactic
research, synthesizing the results of work from a range of linguistic
subdisciplines and in a variety of theoretical frameworks. The first part
surveys leading theories about event structure and conceptualization, the
second part focusing on the mapping from lexical semantics to morphosyntax.
The thematic hierarchy is discussed in detail, and the final chapter
reviews treatments of multiple argument realization. With useful
bibliographic references and clear definitions of relevant terms, this book
will be invaluable to students and researchers in syntax and semantics, as
well as those in related fields.
