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 Perspectives in Greek Linguistics
Edited By: Nikolaos Lavidas
Elissavet Nouchoutidou
Marietta Sionti
Description:

New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics is a selection of papers presenting
some of the ongoing research in Greek Linguistics. The contributions in
this volume, which have their origin in the 4th Athens Postgraduate
Conference in Linguistics, refer to various theoretical frameworks and
cover a wide range of topics (from phonology of dialects to acquisition of
syntax); however, they share the common reference to Greek and Theoretical
Linguistics. The second common feature is a tendency to investigate already
known problems using new methods, considering different factors from
previous research or introducing innovative ideas. The volume is dedicated
to Professor Gaberell Drachman and Professor Angeliki Malikouti-Drachman as
a small token of gratitude for their ceaseless presence and their
contribution to Theoretical Linguistics, to Greek Linguistics and to
postgraduate studies in Linguistics in Greece.
This volume is of particular interest to linguists working on various areas
of Greek Linguistics, especially those who would like to keep up with
ongoing research. It presents an opportunity to see the application of
linguistic theory in Greek and the current comparative research.
