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."

Description:

New from Walter de Gruyter

Published by Walter de Gruyter

The dictionary is comprised of data taken from the analysis of a language
corpus from Leipzig University containing millions of entries. The
dictionary lists all new coinages, loan words borrowed from other
languages, and words that have taken on new meaning (while retaining their
original form) in the German language since 2000. The list of lemmata was
established with the help of automatic frequency analysis, in which the
statistical frequency of the occurrence of a word in the corpus was one of
the factors that determined whether that word would appear as an entry in
the dictionary. Special lexicographic features of the dictionary entries
include not only the definition of the neologism, the date of its first
usage and the citation of numerous authentic documentations of its usage,
but also diagrams illustrating the history of the usage of each neologism.
