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: Canonical Forms in Prosodic Morphology
Written By: Laura J. Downing
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199286393
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This book considers the interaction of morphological and phonological
determinants of linguistic form and the degree to which one determines the
other. It considers the operation of canonical forms, the invariant
syllabic shapes of morphemes and the defining characteristic of prosodic
morphology. Dr Downing presents an original theory which she tests on data
from a wide variety of languages. Her book will be of central interest to
scholars and advanced students of phonology and morphology, and of
linguistic theory more generally.
