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: Analysing English Sentences
Subtitle: A Minimalist Approach
Written By: Andrew Radford
Description:

Analysing English Sentences provides a concise and clear introduction to
current work in syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky’s
Minimalist Program. Assuming little or no prior knowledge of syntax or
minimalism, Radford outlines the core concepts and leading ideas and how
they can be used to describe various aspects of the syntax of English. A
diverse range of topics is covered, including syntactic structure, null
constituents, head movement, case and agreement and split projections.
Using Radford's trademark approach and writing style, the book is intensive
and progressive in nature, introducing grammatical concepts and
working in stages towards more complex phenomena.
