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."


Book Information

   

Title: The Geometry of Visual Phonology
Written By: Linda Uyechi
Description:

Uyechi presents an extremely thorough and formal empirical description of the various features of ASL signs, of interest to any theoretician in developing a theory of sign phonology or in testing claims in the theory of the phonology of spoken languages against data from a signed language. The author also presents a formalism for representing signs and makes a number of theoretical proposals based on formalism. The volume's analysis indicates that the properties of core constructs of the spoken language phonology, namely the segment and the syllable, differ from the properties of the core constructs in a formal framework of visual phonology.
