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: Towards a Derivational Syntax
Subtitle: Survive-minimalism
Edited By: Michael T. Putnam
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%20144
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 144
Description:

This volume explores recent advancements in the Minimalist Program that
adopt Stroik's (1999, 2009) Survive Principle as the principle means of
accounting for displacement phenomena in earlier versions of generative
theory. These contributions bring to light many advantages and challenges
that beset the Survive-minimalist framework, including topics such as the
lexicon-syntax relationship, coordinate symmetries, scope, ellipsis,
code-switching, and probe-goal relations. Despite the diverse, broad range
of topics discussed in this volume, the papers are connected by a renewed
investigation of Frampton & Gutmann's (2002) vision of a crash-proof
syntax. This volume provides new and interesting perspectives on
theoretical issues that have challenged the Minimalist Program since its
inception and will provide ample food for thought for syntacticians working
in the Minimalist tradition and beyond.
