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: Syntactic Theory and the Structure of English: A Minimalist Approach
Written By: Andrew Radford
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521471257
Description:

A new textbook written for students with no background in syntax, which
introduces them to key concepts of Chomsky's Minimalist program (e.g.
merger and movement, checking, economy and greed, split VPs, agreement
projections), as well as providing detailed analysis of the syntax of a
range of different construction types. Illustrative material is mainly
drawn from varieties of English (Belfast English, Shakespearean English,
Jamaican Creole, etc.). There is a substantial glossary and extensive
workbook section with helpful hints and model answers.
