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: New Horizons in the Analysis of Control and Raising
Edited By: William D. Davies
Stanley Dubinsky
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-6175-2
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Description:

Raising and control have figured in every comprehensive model of syntax for
forty years. Recent renewed attention to them makes this collection a
timely one. The contributions, representing some of the most exciting
recent work, address many fundamental research questions. What beside the
canonical constructions might be subject to raising or control analyses?
What constructions traditionally treated as raising or control might not
actually be so? What classes of control must be recognized? How do tense,
agreement, or clausal completeness figure in their distribution? The
chapters address these and other relevant issues, and bring new empirical
data into focus.
