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: Empirical Functionalism and the Prague School
Written By: Bohumil Vykypěl
Series Title: Travaux linguistiques de Brno 06
Description:

In the present volume, the author deals with the relation between the
Prague School and what he calls Empirical Functionalism, the kind of
functionalism pursued by linguists such as T. Givón, Bernard Comrie,
William Croft, Joan Bybee or Martin Haspelmath. He attempts to demonstrate
what the empirical functionalists do not seem to know about the Prague
School, what from the Prague School could be useful for their work and
also, on the other hand, what from the empirical functionalists' work could
be useful for the Prague linguists.
